At the Butler County Treasurer’s office, accuracy is key, and offering friendly customer service is a way of life.

     As Butler County Treasurer, Vicki Schoneman oversees the Property Tax Department, the Motor Vehicle Department and the Driver’s License Department, assisted by deputy treasurers Deb Wangsness, Roxie Nicolaus and Angie Freese and drive examiners Ashley Bangasser and Linde Janssen.

Property Tax Department

     The treasurer’s office collects real estate taxes, mobile home taxes, and is certified by the cities to collect special assessments (such as for curb and gutter).
