Hamilton County Treasurer Asks Taxpayers to Pay Taxes Online or By Mail
Citizens Discouraged from Dropping Off Taxes in Person
(NOBLESVILLE, MARCH 18, 2020) – Hamilton County Treasurer Jennifer Templeton is encouraging taxpayers to pay their property taxes online.
“In an effort to protect the community and our staff from the further spread of COVID-19, we’re asking taxpayers to avoid coming into our office at this time,” Templeton says. “We’re still available to answer any questions you might have. We just encourage you to contact us over the phone.”
Taxpayers have several options for making their payments including the following:
- Pay online at https://www.hamiltoncounty.in.gov/673/Payment-Methods-and-Lender-Information. Online payment fees do apply. e-Checks are $1 and credit cards are 2.5%.
- Drop off payments at the antique drop box outside the east door of the Old Courthouse. If you’d like a receipt, please include a self-addressed, stamped envelope.
- Drop off payments at the following banks: BMO, Busey, Citizens State, Community First, Farmers, Fifth Third, First Farmers, First Merchants, Horizon, Merchants Bank of Indiana, and Star Financial. Many have transitioned to drive-up only, but are still accepting payments.
Property tax bills will be mailed no later than April 15th. To help expedite the process, the Treasurer’s Office has made these amounts available online for early viewing at https://secure2.hamiltoncounty.in.gov/PropertyReports/index.aspx.
Businesses needing signed Property Tax Clearance Forms are encouraged to send them by mail with a return envelope for processing. Innkeepers Tax payments should be mailed.
Mobile Home Title and Moving Permits must still be processed in person, but the Treasurer’s Office asks that citizens contact them prior to arriving so they can provide taxpayers with a complete list of items in an effort to limit time in the office. The Treasurer’s Office can be contacted at (317) 776-9620.
