Under Indiana Law, all payments received by the Treasurer's office AFTER that applicable installment’s due date are considered late UNLESS:
  1. Your properly addressed payment envelope has sufficient postage and CLEARLY displays a United States Post Mark dated on or prior to the due date. Please note that the date printed by in-house postage meters (such as Pitney-Bowes) is not accepted as proof of on-time mailing We recommend that you walk in to the Post Office and asked for a hand stamped post mark.
  2. Your properly address payment is deposited with a nationally recognized express parcel carrier; verified by the express parcel carrier as paid in full for final delivery; and received by the express parcel carrier on or before the due date.

Penalties will be applied if installments are not paid by the due dates. For more information about late tax payments and penalties visit Delinquent Taxes
