The mailing of tax statements has been delayed to April 9th. Due to Governor Holcomb’s Executive Order 20-05 Wellman reminds everyone first installments still remain due on or before May 11, 2020. The order delays the assessment of penalties on the property tax portion for a period of 60 days. All units of government (cities, towns, libraries, schools, etc) rely on the timely payment of property taxes. Any delays will negatively impact their cash flows.
Due to the COVID-19 virus outbreak and request by State and local health officials to reduce gatherings of people, there will be no paying in person at the Treasurer’s office. Payments may be made by one of the following methods:
1. Mail your tax statement(s) and check to: Daviess County Treasurer, 200 E. Walnut St, Washington, IN 47501. 2. Pay online at www.govtechtaxpro.com. . Go to State – Indiana, then to Collector – Daviess. You can search by parcel number or name. You can then pay by credit or debit card or e-check. A fee is charged by the service company.
