Scott County Treasurer, Sheryl Jent, reminds everyone that Monday, May 10 is the payment deadline for SPRING 2015 property tax, payable in 2016. The statements will be mailed out Friday, April 15.

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 wall 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, 2016. 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 or write parcel number on check. Please remember the statement you receive includes both SPRING and FALL coupons; therefore, statements are NOT mailed again in the FALL. Due to the increase of counterfeit currency, patience is asked while the staff inspects “ALL BILLS” when paying by cash.

Banks also conveniently accept tax payments and offer Saturday hours that the courthouse does not. Hours of operations are:
