Scott County Treasurer, Sheryl Jent, reminds everyone that Friday, May 10 is the payment deadline for SPRING 2012 property tax, payable in 2013. The statements were mailed out Monday, April 8.
Jent states the taxpayers have several payment options: 1) In person at the Treasurer’s office located on the east side of courthouse. 2) Locked drop-box located at the counter of Treasurer’s office to avoid waiting in line. 3) Call 812.752.8414 to pay by phone; however, credit/debit card transaction fees do apply. 4) Mail check along with payment coupon to: Scott Co. Treasurer, 1 E. McClain Avenue, Suite 140, Scottsburg, IN 47170. Non-sufficient funds will void tax payment.
Mailed payments must have a Postal Service postmark on or before May 10, 2013. Receipt(s) can be mailed to taxpayer if self-addressed stamped envelope is enclosed with payment.
To ensure prompt posting of your tax payment, please detach and return the SPRING payment coupon with your payment.
