News release from the Allen County Treasurer:
Property Tax Bills Are Due Monday, May 12, 2014
(April 30, 2014) – “Tax due day is fast approaching” says Chief Deputy Treasurer William Royce. The due date is May 12, 2014. Payments must be in the Treasurer’s office or postmarked by May 12, 2014 to avoid penalty.
Several payment methods are available including the brand new self-pay kiosk which is located just outside the Treasurer’s office.
“Fun and paying taxes are not two concepts we usually put together,” says Royce “But I’ve actually had a taxpayer tell me it is fun using the kiosk!”
Another payment option that is growing in popularity is the Single Electronic Payment option that can be accessed on the Treasurer’s website which is www.allencounty.us/treasurers-office.
“The Single Electronic Pay option is free, secure and fast.” says Royce.
No setup or log in is required. Simply enter your bill duplicate number found at the top of your tax bill, fill in the remaining fields and press submit. You will be asked to review your entry and if correct you press submit a second time and your payment is on its way.
Other payment options include:
Mail to: Allen County Treasurer, PO Box 2540, Fort Wayne IN 46801-2540. Payment is considered “on time” when postmarked by the US Post Office on or before the due date.
Local Banks: You may pay your property taxes on time at the Allen County banks listed on the back of the tax bill. You must have your tax statement when paying at a bank.
Treasurer’s Office: The Treasurer’s office is located in suite 104 of the Rousseau Centre 1 E. Main St. in Fort Wayne. Please bring your entire statement when paying in person. Office hours are 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. weekdays. The deposit slot in the front of the Treasurer’s office is available from 7:00 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. as is the self-pay kiosk.
