Property tax bills are on their way: treasurer

Property tax bills have been mailed out, Huntington County Treasurer Paula Farley has announced.

The statements were mailed on April 12. Property owners who do not receive a statement by the end of April should call the treasurer’s office at 358-4860, Farley says. Failure to receive a statement does not relieve the taxpayer of the responsibility to pay the bill, she adds.

The amount of taxes due for each property can also be accessed online at www.huntington.in.us by choosing “GIS” under the “County” tab and searching by name, address or parcel number.

The 2017 property tax bill may be paid in two installments, with the first installment accepted through May 10.

A variety of payment methods are available:

• Payments may be made in person — with cash, money orders and checks only — at the treasurer’s office on the first floor of the Huntington County Courthouse.

The office is open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. and will have special hours on Saturday, May 6, from 8 a.m. to noon.

• Payments may be made by credit or debit card online at www.huntingtontax.net or by calling 800-809-5849. A fee is charged for the use of a debit or credit card.

• Payments may be made at several area banks if a current tax statement is presented. No partial payments can be made at the banks. Participating banks are Bippus State Bank, First Farmers Bank & Trust, First Federal Savings Bank, First Source Bank, iAB financial bank and Lake City Bank.

• Payments may be mailed to the county treasurer. Payments must be postmarked no later than May 10 to be considered on time. Taxpayers should write their phone number on the check. A self-addressed stamped envelope must be included if a receipt is requested. Payments should be mailed to County Treasurer, Courthouse, 201 N. Jefferson St., Room 104, Huntington, IN 46750.
