  » A Note From Marsha     » Notice of Tax Roll Certification     » Property Tax and Budget Information


Recently a number of Polk County Residents received letters from Record Transfer Services and others explaining the need for homeowners to have a copy of their Current Grant Deed and Property Assessment Profile. The letter states that copies of these documents may be obtained through them for a fee that exceeds the cost necessary for you to obtain the information yourself. (SAMPLE LETTERS)

The Polk County Property Appraiser's office wants you to know that property records and deeds provided by Record Transfer Services and any other similar companies may be obtained online for little or no cost to you.
