Property taxes are due by May 10
Porter County Treasurer Mike Bucko reminds taxpayers that spring payment of property taxes is due May 10.
To avoid penalties, payments must be postmarked May 10 to be considered on time. Payment information is on the front and back of this year’s tax bill.
Taxpayers can pay online at www.porterco.org, by clicking on “Pay my tax bill.” The duplicate number is required, so taxpayers should have their tax bills when they go online.
For those paying online, E-check is free but credit and debit cards have a fee. Taxpayers should provide their email address and check the proper box to get an electronic receipt that payment was made.
Taxpayers have until 11:59:59 p.m. on May 10 to be on time when they pay online.
Taxpayers also can pay in person at the Treasurer’s Office, 155 Indiana Ave. Office hours are 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Call 465-3470 for more information.
