Allen County Treasurer William Royce issued a reminder to property owners that Friday, May 10 is the deadline to pay property taxes. Payments must be in the Treasurer’s office or postmarked by May 10, 2019 to be considered on time and to avoid penalty. Metered mail stamps do not qualify as a postmark.
Both the spring and fall tax bills were mailed in April. If you have misplaced your bill, a new bill can be printed from the Treasurer’s Office website, www.allencountytreasurer.us. Under “Quick Links” click “Print a Tax Bill.”
Several payment methods are available and all are listed on the back of your tax statement:
Mail to: Allen County Treasurer, PO Box 2540, Fort Wayne IN 46801-2540. Payment is considered “on time” when postmarked by the US Post Office on or before the due date.
On line Options: Convenient and efficient payment options such as single electronic payment from a savings or checking account, payments by credit cards and phone in payments are available. See the back of your tax bill for all payment options.
Treasurer’s Office: The Treasurer’s office is located in the ROUSSEAU CENTRE, 1 E MAIN ST, SUITE 104. Please bring your entire statement or reprinted tax bill with you when paying in person. Office hours are 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. weekdays. The deposit slot in the front of the Treasurer’s office is available from 7:00 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. if you wish to drop off your payment and avoid the wait. An easy to use tax payment kiosk is also located in the hallway outside of the Treasurer’s Office and is available from 7:00 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. The convenient touch screen will walk you through the payment process in just a few simple steps.
