The Indiana Department of Local Government Finance announced that property tax bills have been issued in every Indiana county. This is the first time since 2001 that all 92 counties have achieved on-time billing.
“The DLGF is very pleased that all 92 counties have returned to the normal statutory tax billing cycle,” said DLGF Commissioner Micah G. Vincent. “This milestone could not have been accomplished without the time and effort of the county and township assessors, county auditors, and county treasurers.”
On-time tax bills provide predictability for both taxpayers and local government units. Many of Indiana’s 2,500 local governments will no longer have to borrow money to continue operations while waiting for delayed revenue distributions due to late tax billing and collections.
