Death Certificates

COVID-19 Status Update - 5/4/2020 11:00 AM

Scott County Customer Service continues to accept transactions through the drop boxes for tabs, title transfers, disability certificates, duplicate titles and other deputy registrar services. We are also able to accept applications for marriage licenses via email, fax, mail or drop box. This does not include driver’s license as face-to-face transactions are still prohibited.

Please ensure that all transactions left in the drop boxes have a phone number enclosed. Requests will be processed within 24 hours and returned via mail.
