Clark and Floyd Counties to Send Tax Bills Next Month | News


SOUTH INDIANA — Residents of Clark and Floyd counties can expect to receive their tax bills April 8.

In both counties, bills are due May 10. Anyone paying the bill in two installments will have one payment due on May 10 and another on November 10.

Clark County Treasurer Monty Snelling said the problem with payments this year is that Clark County government offices will be moving to the new building in April.

Mailers will be sent to Clark County residents later this month that will show a photo of the new building along with the address and directions, Snelling said.

Snelling said they’re trying to make it as easy as possible for people to come to the new building if they’re looking to pay or have questions about their bill.

The government building on Court Avenue will still have a drop box for tax payments once the county moves to the new River Ridge facility.

In addition to in-person payments, residents can pay their bill online at BillPay.forte.net/ClarkCoinTax, by phone, by mail, or at accepting banks listed on the back of the tax bill.

Changes are also happening in Floyd County. Deputy Chief Treasurer Diana Topping said the county no longer uses First Harrison Bank or Stock Yards Bank for residents to make payments.

German American Bank is the only bank where residents can make their property tax payments. Residents may visit any German-American bank in Floyd County and are not required to be members of the bank.

Floyd County Treasurer Steve Burks said while there won’t be as many places residents can make payments, it won’t affect payment processing efficiency.

Residents can also make payments over the phone, by mail with a self-addressed envelope included with the tax bill, online at GovTechTaxPro.com or in person at the City-County Building.

The county will have a drop box for tax payments in front of the City-County Building and another in the lobby of the Floyd County Sheriff’s Department.

Topping said there had been a slight increase in property taxes across the board, but nothing out of the norm. She noted that some residents of the district might see a slight decrease in taxes while other residents of the district would see a slight increase.

In Clark County, Snelling said the state hasn’t returned the data yet, but he doesn’t expect a big increase in property taxes in the county.
