Property Taxes – Property taxes are due in two installments. May 10, 2017 and November 13, 2017. Any unpaid balances after the due dates are assessed a penalty. If there are no prior delinquencies on the parcel, a 5% penalty will be added if paid in full within 30 calendar days after the installment due dates. An additional 5% penalty will be added on the 31st day after the installment due dates for any unpaid balances. If there are prior delinquent amounts due on that parcel as of the due date, a 10% penalty will be added on the day after the installment due date.
The Treasurer’s Office accepts partial payments for taxes in any amount and as frequently as the taxpayer wants to make a partial payment. However, any unpaid amounts remaining as of the due date will be assessed penalties as described above.
Payments post marked after May 10th will receive a 5% penalty. Payments are considered on time when postmarked by the US Post office by the installment due dates.
Payments received in our office after June 9th will receive 10% penalty. Post mark is not accepted after the initial due date.
Property tax bills, including payment coupons for both installments, are mailed annually at least 15 business days prior to the due date for the first installment.
This year eNotices will be available for paperless billing in 2018. Registration instructions will be mailed with your bill. To view 2017 balances and printable invoices, click on “To View or Pay Your Tax Bill Online” from the home page. Property owners are responsible for seeing that their taxes are paid on time to avoid penalty. Not receiving a property tax bill is not sufficient reason to waive the penalty.
Escrow Accounts - Call your mortgage company or escrow agent to confirm payment. Email email@example.com or call 812-349-2530 to obtain confirmation of payment. If you recently closed your escrow account, contact the Treasurer’s Office to confirm payment or balance due.
Buying or Selling a Home - Confirm payment or balance due by email firstname.lastname@example.org or call the office at 812-349-7333. Tax bills are sent to the owner of record as of January 1st, 2017.
Out of the Country - Property taxes can be viewed and paid online. Credit card payments can be taken over the phone. The processing company charges a convenience fee that will be added to your total. The county does not retain this fee. 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.
Payment Methods - Cash, checks, E-checks, Credit cards and money orders.
Include Spring Treasurer’s Copy “A” and/or “B” coupon and check or money order. Payment is considered on time when postmarked by the US Post office by the due date.
