On the first page of your yearly Property Tax Statement you will find several lines of useful information. The above image highlights several portions of your bill and the details are listed here.

1. This is the State Parcel Number associated with the particular property. When referencing your property, whether at the Treasurer’s Office, Auditor’s Office, or Assessor’s Office, the State Parcel Number is the fastest way to reference the correct property.

2. The “Delinquent After” line of your Tax Bill states the last day the amount owed on the property can be paid to the Bartholomew County Treasurer’s Office before penalties will automatically be applied.

3. This portion of your tax bill contains five (5) lines, each affecting the total amount due.

“Tax Due For This Installment” denotes the amount of taxes the property owner is responsible for.

“Other Charges (refer to Table 4)” denotes an additional amount of money in owed. This can be for services such as drains and will be detailed on the second page of your statement if money is owed.

“Delinquent Tax” refers to the amount of taxes owed during previous tax years. Note that any payments made after April 1st will not be included on your statement.

“Delinquent Penalties” refers to penalties applied for tax payments that were delinquent. Note that any payments made after April 1st will not be included on your statement.

“LESS PAYMENTS” refers to payments that have been made and are credited toward the amount due.
