Property tax statements sent

Monday, April 11, 2011

Putnam County Treasurer Sharon Owens announced recently that property tax statements have been mailed.

Spring tax installments will be due on May 10, and fall tax installments will be due Nov. 10. For the convenience of the taxpayers, four payment options are available.

Taxes can be paid at Old National Bank, First National Bank, Tri-County Bank or North Salem State Bank. Residents must have their tax statements with them in order to make payments at bank locations.

Payments may also be made with a credit card or debit card at www.putnamtax.net or by calling 1-800-809-5849. Website payments will be charged a fee by PowerPay equal to 2.95 percent of the total tax paid. The minimum processing feel will be $3 per online payment. If paid by phone, PowerPay has a minimum $5 fee.

Credit and debit card payments will not be accepted in the Putnam County Treasurer's Office.

If paying by mail, address to Putnam County Treasurer, PO Box 508, Greencastle, IN 46135.

Anyone wishing to pay by mail and would like a receipt returned should enclose a self-addressed stamped envelope. Tax payments will be considered on time as long as they are postmarked on or before the due date.

Paying in person at the Putnam County Treasurer's Office is also an available option. The office is located on the second floor of the courthouse and is open Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Payments are accepted by check, money order or cash.

For questions, contact the treasurer's office at 653-4510 or treasurer@co.putnam.in.us.

Oh we received our Property Taxes yesterday and of course they have increased...We can't get our road fixed, our property taxes keeps increasing, the gas is getting higher, and now groceries will be increased. What is wrong with this picture? Everything is increasing but our salaries. You know it would not bother me so much but everyone that I have talked to that lives in South Putnam school district their taxes was reduced...Why does Greencastle School District increase every year? What will happen is people that actually pay their property taxes in this district will move out of it...which we have considered the last few years. With our Road becoming one LARGE HOLE and our property taxes increasing...WHY NOT MOVE...you will lose one property owner that actually pays their taxes and on time!
