Property Taxes

     It is that time of year again – Property Taxes are due by October 31, 2022. We offer several ways to pay either by phone, mail, drop box or in person. A few reminders, if you do not want to stand in line at the office we do offer a drop box in the parking lot next to the Sheriff’s Office & one right next to our office window inside the Courthouse (both are secure and checked a few times daily). If paying by phone there is an additional credit/debit card fee. If mailing a payment it must be postmarked Oct 31st or before to avoid any late fees.

Important Voter Information

Fall River County residents;

The County Auditor’s office would like to encourage any registered voters that may have experienced a change of address by either physically moving to a different location or their physical address being changed, to update their voter registration as soon as possible.

Once every two years, during non-election years, the South Dakota Secretary of State and counties do a process of list maintenance. A list of voters is generated to be mailed who have not updated their registration nor voted in the last 2 election cycles (4 years). If the address provided on the registration is incorrect or outdated (for example, if you had an old rural route address that has since been updated) this would impact you as the notice will be returned “Undeliverable”. This will potentially cause a voter’s registration to become inactive. This means you would need to fill out a new voter registration prior to voting at the polls.

You may contact the Auditor’s office @ (605) 745-5130 or mail correspondence to: Fall River County Auditor, 906 N River St., Hot Springs, SD 57747 or visit the office in person. You may also email the Auditor:    [email protected]
