Tax Information & Payments During COVID-19 Closure

Employees of the Porter County Treasurer’s Office will continue to be available answer questions by phone (219-465-3470) or EMAILand will continue to process all payments. 

Property Tax Payments

We strongly urge all taxpayers to consider using our online website and payment portal.  There is no extra charge for making electronic check payments.  There are merchant processing fees for credit and debit card payments just as these fees are charged when paying with credit and debit cards in the office. 

2020 Tax amounts have been certified and are AVAILABLE ONLINE where you can search for your property.  You may print bills from the online site and do not need to wait for your mailed version.  Here are some search tips:

  • If you have a prior bill, the easiest search is by entering the Duplicate # found on your bill.
  • Only use one (1) of the search options.
  • Less is more.  Entering too much data to search may exclude your property.  Try just the last name, or just the numbers of your address.
