TIPPECANOE CO., Ind. (WLFI) – This year’s property tax bills hit the mail Friday, the Tippecanoe County Treasurer’s Office said. Taxpayers will even have two extra days to get in their spring payments.
Due to May 10 falling on a Saturday in 2014, the spring due date is pushed back two days to Monday, May 12, 2014. The fall due date remains November 10, 2014. Payments should be made to the Treasurer’s Office located in City Building at the corner of Third and Columbia streets.
The Treasurer’s Office said payments can be made in person at the office, online, by mail with a federal postmark by the due date, or use the drop box outside the office. Officials said online payments can be made by credit card or e-check.
In a release to News 18, County Treasurer Bob Plantenga said, if the taxpayer has an escrow account then a comparison statement is mailed to the taxpayer showing the amount of taxes and the distribution of those taxes.
Plantenga said if a bill is received by the taxpayer and the bank is responsible for paying the taxes, they need to forward the bill to their bank immediately. Lastly, he said if the taxpayer receives an escrow statement and they are responsible for paying the taxes, a duplicate bill is available online.
