- 2. Click the ACCESS THIS RECORD FOR FREE box. Your login is now linked to your property. Next time you visit the site and enter your User and Password you will have free access to your property.
Please note: The owner name we have listed in our database must appear identical on each property you own. If you have multiple properties that appear under different combinations of names, spouses names, middle initials, or spellings you will need to create a User and Password for each variation of owner name and complete the process of linking to the property with each new login name.
Viewing Property and Tax Information, and Making Tax Payments
- Login using your User and Password if you have not already.
- You switch between property and tax information using the tabs part way down the page.
- The green "JUMP TO" box will allow you to navigate to the different information sections on that page. Clicking the plus or minus icons next to sections will show or hide more details.
Making Tax Payments
- You can either make a payment from the TAX TAB or by clicking on the menu item in the left column.
- 2. Follow the instructions on the website.
Payments will include a service fee. The service fee is charged by the company that processes the payments on behalf of the City. As of the time of these instructions the fee is 3% for credit cards or $3.00 for checking accounts.
Please note that City Staff are not familiar with the technical aspects of the property and tax website and cannot walk payers through the process over the phone. The website is maintained and supported by BS&A Software. If you are having problems using the website please call the software company directly and they will be happy to assist you. For questions or help please call BS&A Software at 1-855-272-7638.
For Landlords with DBA's or Multiple Owner Names
You will need a separate login for each business name you list properties under.
You must logout of any other user login first (upper right of screen). Search for your rental property. Repeat the steps above to create a new user account and link it to a property with your business name. If you have properties under multiple rental business names repeat the process for each group of properties, creating a different user login for each group.
Please note: The name we have listed in our database must appear identical on each property. Please contact the City Assessor's office if each of your property names are not identical.
Some Notes about how the Lookup Works
You cannot ADD properties under other names to your existing user login. The user login will automatically work on your other properties as long as our records here have all of them with the same exact spelling of owner name.
If you ever "get lost" on the BS&A site you can always get back to the Iron Mountain search page by typing "www.cityoforinmountain.com/propertysearch" in your browser's address bar.
If the owner name you look up differs in the slightest to the first property in your login setup, it will ask you to pay for the record.
For questions or help with using the lookup, creating an account, or access problems please contact the software company directly. City Staff are not familiar with the technical aspects of this property search software, please call BS&A Software at 1-855-272-7638 and they will gladly help you with your access question.
As of October 1, 2010 the charge for property and tax information per property is $2.00 online, and $5.00 in person over the counter. Tax and property information is no longer provided to non-owners over the phone, or by fax or email.
How to Access Records as a Non-owner
Please read instructions before Proceeding

Payment to access records online is handled exclusively by the service provider BS&A Internet Services directly through the website. BS&A offers multiple ways to pay such as quarterly invoicing, pre-paying, or pay-as-you-go with a credit card. Contact BS&A at 517-641-8900 for more information.

User Accounts for Non-Owners
You do not need to create a user account when paying-as-you-go on a record by record basis, however, you will need to use a credit card each time you want to view a record.
Setting up an account will allow monthly billing or pre-paying options. The user account will work for any municipality that uses BS&A Internet Services anywhere in the U.S.
If you have technical questions or problems related to using the service such as accessing or paying for records or creating user accounts please contact the service provider directly by calling BS&A Internet Services 517-641-8900.
Over Counter Charge
In addition to the new online charge, there is an over-the-counter charge for any property or tax related information requested by non-owners. The charge is $5.00 per record payable in person on a record by record basis. Invoicing is not currently available for over-the-counter requests.
Property owners may request their information without charge at any time.
Delinquent Taxes and Special Assessments
