Allen County property tax bills payable in 2015 will hit the mail on April 10. The due date is May 11. Both the spring and fall remittance coupons are included in the bill; there will be no fall mailing. To avoid long lines in the Treasurer's office, taxpayers are encouraged to pay early.
"We seem to get a flurry of activity when bills are first mailed but then the activity dies down. On tax due day, we have long lines," said William Royce, chief deputy treasurer.
Paying in the Treasurer's office is not your only option. There are several online payment methods which can be found at www.allencountytreasurer.us.
New this year, taxpayers paying by check can phone in their payment. To pay by phone using a check you will need your tax duplicate number found at the top of your bill, the amount you wish to pay, your bank routing number and account number. Dial 1-877-690-3729 and use jurisdiction code 7693. This is a free service.
"All payment options are listed on the back of your tax bill." Royce said. "I also want to remind taxpayers that local banks no longer collect taxes."
If you do not receive a tax bill, you can request one by calling the Treasurer's office or print one off online at the Treasurer's website.
