Treasurer Mike Bucko reminds taxpayers the deadline for spring property tax
payments is Monday, May 12.
Office where payments can be made is open Monday through Friday from 8:30
a.m. to 4:30 p.m. at the Porter County Administration Building, 155 Indiana
Ave. in Valparaiso.
The office will be
closed on Primary Election Day -- Tuesday, May 6 -- but will reopen on
Wednesday, May 7 at normal business hours.
Payments made after
May 12 are subject to the appropriate penalties.
Bucko also asks
that all Porter County residents who are elected officials, state employees,
school corporation employees, city, town or county government employees to
remember they are required to be current with their tax status.
Tax Sale payment
plans are possible if the taxpayer misses the deadline and hasnít defaulted
on a previous tax sale payment plan, Bucko said.
To talk about how
you may be eligible for a payment plan, please call Treasurer Bucko or his
chief deputy Matt Baker at (219)-465-3470 or (219)-465-3477.
