Property tax deadline approaching


Rushville Republican

---- — Rush County tax statements will soon be in the mail. This year the deadline to pay spring property taxes in Rush County is Monday, May 12. If you have any questions or problems with your bill prior to the deadline, please call the Treasurer's Office at 932-2386 or e-mail the office at treasurer@rushcounty.in.gov.

There are several options to pay Rush County taxes. The treasurer's office will accept cash, checks and money orders. Credit and debit card payment will be accepted online at rushcountytax.net or rushcounty.in.gov, by calling 1-800-809-5849 or at the public access terminal in the treasurer's office. Access your tax bill information simply by entering your name. There is no fee for tax information online but there is a fee of 2.95% of your bill for tax payments with a $3 minimum for online payments and a $5 minimum for telephone payments.

MainSource Bank branches at Foster Heights and downtown will accept tax payments until closing time on Monday, May 12. The Knightstown Branch will no longer accept payments. Only full payments as stated on the bill may be accepted at the bank and your cancelled check will serve as your receipt.

Both Spring (coupon A) and Fall (coupon B) are mailed together. The "A" coupon is due May 12, but you may pay both spring and fall for the spring deadline. If you do not wish to pay the fall coupon at this time, please retain the "B" coupon which will be due Nov. 10, 2014. The "C" coupon is the customer receipt and if mailing the payment, it should be kept for your records. If you are paying in the treasurer's office, we will validate the "C" when you present it with the spring and fall coupons.

Mailed payments must be postmarked by May 12. Statements may be mailed to PO Box 291, Rushville or to the courthouse at 101 E 2nd Street, Room 213, Rushville.

The treasurer's office is always here to help at 765-932-2386 or treasurer@rushcounty.in.gov. The courthouse is open 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday to Friday.
