If possible you should bring the mobile home title to the Treasurer’s office to obtain a permit. If no title is available we would need to prepare a letter stating all taxes were paid for three consecutive years for the license branch. If you are moving the mobile home you will need to provide the new location address. We also need the name of the current mobile home owner to verify the taxes have been paid. To obtain a title transfer and/or moving permit you must have the full years taxes paid. If it is after January 15th assessment date you must pay an estimated tax for that year. Permits are good for 30 days.
Mailing address changes are handled in the Treasurer’s office and the taxpayer should notify us. The tax statement will continue to go to your former address unless our office is notified by you or the Post office returns your mail to us. You can call our office at 765-584-0704 or email at email@example.com
If you purchase a property after the March 1st assessment date, then the previous owners name will appear on the bill. The county is to show who the owner of record was as of March 1st. You should expect the former owners name to be deleted the next year.
Exemptions are filed in the Auditor’s Office. You can find information concerning exemptions here or by calling the Auditor's office at 765-584-6700.
There are a number of exemptions and deductions available to qualifying taxpayers. Click here to learn more. The County Auditor can provide you with information and assist you in determining whether or not you qualify.
All real estate parcels that have a balance due from spring of the prior year or before are eligible for the tax sale. Normally, tax sale notices are sent out in July if our county is collecting in May and November. Upon certifying the tax amounts to the Auditor there is a $96.00 tax sale fee added. You would have from July until the day of sale to pay the back taxes. If your property does sell at the tax sale, you can still redeem the property but you will also have to pay tax sale fees and daily accruing interest (currently 10%).

We send out one billing in the spring of each year. That bill has two payment coupons to make a payment in May and November. In the case of properties eligible for tax sale, a delinquent courtesy letter would be sent to the last known address.
A penalty of 5% of the unpaid balance will be added if you have no other delinquencies on that parcel and the taxes are paid within 30 days of the due date . After 30 days the penalty amount is 10% of the unpaid balance.
Yes, we consider a payment "on time" if the envelope is postmarked on or before the due date. Please be aware of postal deadlines and specific procedures when mailing your property tax bill. We use the postmark as printed on the envelope when determining if a payment is on time. (Please note: Postmarks are valid for regular tax payments only and do not apply to properties going to tax sale.)
Based on the March 1st ownership year, taxes are due and payable the following year in two installments. Tax bills are mailed once a year; both the 1st and 2nd installment payment coupons are included. Due dates are on each installment statement. Taxes not paid on or before the due date are subject to a penalty.
Your assessed value is multiplied by the tax rate. The tax rate is the total rate of the combined taxing units (County, Township, City or Town, Library, etc) within each taxing district. The tax rate is expressed in dollars per hundred dollar of assessed value. This amount is reduced by state and county credits and by any exemptions or deductions you may have as well as any tax caps that may apply.
You should contact the Treasurers office at 765.584.0704. We will verify your mailing address and mail a new bill out to you. Failure to receive a tax statement by mail does not relieve the taxpayer of the responsibility for payment and penalties when delinquent.
When making your payment in person, we will print a receipt out for you. When mailing your payment we will return a receipt if you send a stamped self-addressed envelope, otherwise your check will serve as your receipt.
You can pay your bill by mail, in person, at Old National Bank, or pay online with a credit card or pay by phone using a credit card. For more detailed information click here.
