Scott County Treasurer, Sheryl Jent, reminds everyone that Thursday, November 10 is the payment deadline for 2015 property tax, payable in 2016. The original statements were mailed out in April which included BOTH spring and fall coupons.

Treasurer 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 Nov. 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 payment coupon with your payment or write parcel number on check. 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. You MUST present fall coupon. Hours of operations are:

YOUR COMMUNITY BANK – (WesBanco) Monday, Tuesday, Thursday 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m,.; Wednesday & Saturday, 8:30 a.m. to Noon; Friday 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.

The Treasurer says if you can’t pay the entire tax amount due, please come in and make a partial payment to avoid any additional penalty. Partial payments are accepted year round. Please keep in mind any unpaid taxes will automatically receive penalty after Nov 10.
