Property tax refunds to be mailed soon

CHECK'S IN THE MAIL

Property taxpayers could see rebate checks as soon as next week.

"We just got word today that the treasurer's office has completed their delinquency process," county auditor Stephanie Campbell said.

The promised rebates -- intended by the state to soften the increases seen in last year's property taxes -- will likely be smaller than originally thought. Some checks could be issued for just pennies, and even those who are not due a rebate will receive a check for "zero dollars."

The process now depends on software to get the rebate information translated to checks. If nothing "crops up" to delay the process, Campbell said, checks could start being issued within the next week.

The IndyStar reports today that Hamilton County's Auditor is saving their taxpayers several thousand dollars by having a company in Danville process their rebate checks. The $40,000 paid to the company to prepare and mail the checks will be paid out of using the interest on the state funds sent to Hamilton County, with no additional cost to the taxpayer. I can only hope our Putnam County Auditor looked at options such as this prior to asking for the extra money from the Council to process and mail the rebate checks to Putnam County taxpayers.
