Tax collection dates: Real estate and personal property taxes are due on May 10 and November 10 of each year unless those dates fall on a weekend or holiday. The statement will be mailed in April and contain two coupons, one for each due date. Failure to receive a tax statement by mail does not relieve the taxpayer of the responsibility for the tax payment and/or penalties when delinquent.
Escrow accounts: Call your mortgage company or escrow agent to confirm payment. You may email firstname.lastname@example.org or call (812) 247-3701 to request a receipt. If you recently closed your escrow account, contact the Treasurer’s Office to confirm payment or balance due. If you received a bill, you should contact your mortgage company to bill the escrow account.
Buying or selling a home: Tax bills are sent to the owner of record as of January 1st of the prior year for real estate parcels.
Penalties and partial payments: Any unpaid balances after the due dates are assessed a penalty. If there are no prior delinquencies, a 5% penalty will be added if paid in full within 30 calendar days after the payment was due. An additional 5% penalty will be added on the 31st day after the payment was due for any unpaid balances. If there is a prior delinquent amount on the parcel as of the due date, a 10% penalty will be added on the day after the payment due date.
The Treasurer’s Office accepts partial payments for taxes in any amount and as frequently as the taxpayer wants to make partial payments. However, any unpaid amounts remaining as of the due date will be assessed penalties as described above.
