Property Taxes Due

Property Taxes are due May 10th and November 10th each year. The statement is mailed in April and contain two coupons, one for each due date.

Monroe County Treasurer
P.O. Box 1209 
Fairfield OH, 45018-1209

For fast, accurate and secure processing, payments are processed by our bank, First Financial Bank.

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 2019. Registration instructions will be mailed with your bill. 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.

Payment Options (more details)

  • IN PERSON with check or money order: Treasurer’s Office Room 204 in the County Courthouse at 100 West Kirkwood Ave Bloomington IN 47404. Bring your bill.

  • BY MAIL with check or money order. Include Spring Treasurer’s Copy “A” and/or “B” coupon with your payment. Payment is considered on time when postmarked by the US Post office by the due date (see our postmark policy).

  • ONLINE or BY PHONE with Credit Card, Debit Card or E-Check:  Pay at or in person at the Treasurer's Office. Phone payments can be made through our automated system by calling 877-690-3729 and entering the Monroe Jurisdiction Code - which is 2410. 

    For online and phone payments, the processing company will charge a service fee that will be added to your total. The County does not retain this fee. 

    Out of the Country: Use either the online or phone system to pay by Credit Card, Debit Card or E-Check. Taxes can be viewed and paid online. 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. Email or call 812-349-2530 to request 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 must contact your mortgage company to bill the escrow account.

Buying or Selling a Home

Confirm payment or balance due by email or call the office at 812-349-7333. Tax bills are sent to the owner of record as of January 1st.

Penalties and Partial Payments

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.

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.

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.
