Spencer property taxes

Sunday, July 8, 2018

Have been thinking about moving to Iowa from the west but in researching on Zillow, property taxes on a house here are $140 a month while in Spencer with a comparable house the taxes would be $500 a month. Add $500 a month to a house payment!? That’s a real deal breaker. Don’t know who’s responsible for property taxes — the city, county or state — but if their intention is to keep people out of the area, someone should let them know they’re doing a great job.
