Welcome to Adams County!

The County Treasurer's Office is dedicated to serving the public and other government units in the most friendly, efficient, and effective manner possible. The County Treasurer's Office collects second installment and delinquent real estate taxes, collects all county revenues in addition to research and issuance of tax deed applications. Our office is the holder of tax records and assessed values. Office hours are Monday through Friday, 8:00 am - 4:30 pm, excluding most holidays.

Initial Real Estate Tax information becomes available online at www.adamscountylandrecords .com, usually mid to late December. Municipality collected tax payments will not be imported into our system until after February settlement. If you are looking for 2017 tax year payments, please come back and check out our website AFTER February 15. Hopefully all will updated or close to it by that time. If you need to know if the Real Estate Tax has been paid prior to the import, please contact your Municipal Treasurer. Thank you!
