Scott County Treasurer, Sheryl Jent, reminds everyone that Tuesday, November 10 is the payment deadline for 2014 property tax, payable in 2015. The original statements were mailed out April 15 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, 2015. 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.
