Fall property taxes are soon due

RUSHVILLE — Rush County Treasurer Mary Ann Beard reminds Rush County taxpayers that it is time to find those fall tax bills.

The fall statement (or “B” copy) is needed for your fall payment. Lost bills may be duplicated in the Treasurer’s office.

Nov. 10 falls on a Saturday this year and Monday, Nov. 12 is Veterans’ Day so taxes are not due until Tuesday, Nov. 13.

All payments received after Nov. 13 will receive a 5 percent penalty for the first 30 days and a 10 percent penalty after 30 days.

The Treasurer’s office is available to receive your payments from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday. The office is located on the second floor of the Rush County Courthouse.

Cash and check payments will be received. All checks should be made payable to the Rush County Treasurer. Credit card payments will not be received in the office.  

All taxpayers are welcome to pay their taxes at MainSource bank downtown, the Foster Heights branch, and the Knightstown branch.

When paying by mail include only the “Treasurers’ Copy” of your statement. You must keep the taxpayers copy for your receipt. The Treasurer’s office will not return paid receipts. Do not include self-addressed envelopes.

Allow sufficient time for mailing. All payments must be postmarked Nov. 13.  

A new media service is available called iFreedom. View your tax information and your payment history, make secure credit card payments, or receive email receipts for your records. Simply go to or call iFreedom at (800) 809-5849 and speak with a live representative, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.

This is also a great time to check your tax exemptions.

Have you moved recently and need to re-file your Homestead exemption? Refinanced and have a new mortgage? Or, have you turned 65 this year? If you answered yes to any of these questions you may be eligible to receive a tax exemption.

Please be mindful that the courthouse is closed today, Nov. 6, for election day.

The Treasurer may be reached at 932-2386 or at
