The Henry Trustee is the county's banker and tax collector. The trustee, who is elected to a four year term, maintains control of county funds until they are distributed on a monthly basis to government agencies. The trustee oversees a total annual cash flow of all county finances.


The amount of your tax bill is determined by the assessment of your property by the property assessor. The property tax rate is set by the county commission as determined by the needs of the county departments for the operation of our county. 


Tax bills are mailed in October and become delinquent if not paid by the last day in February of the following year. As tax collector, the trustee processes all tax bills and collects all money owed.
