Perry County Tax Bills Arrive | News


Another sure sign of spring, tax bills from Perry County homeowners arrived in mailboxes the week of April 4. The expected mailing date is April 5, 2022.

Perry County Treasurer Amanda F. Lasher would like to remind Perry County ratepayers that the first (spring) property tax installments will be due (Tuesday) May 10, 2022. Tax bills mailed in April include coupons for May and November payments, and this will be the only invoice homeowners will receive in 2022. Any payments made or postmarked after the 10th will be considered late and subject to late fees . Additionally, Amanda is pleased to announce that you can view your property information and tax bills at www.lowtaxinfo/perrycounty.

To help you pay your taxes on time, taxpayers can make payments in person at the Courthouse Treasurer’s Office from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday through Friday (closed 12 p.m. to 1 p.m. for lunch). On Monday & Tuesday May 9 & 10, the office will be open from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.

A drop box is located outside in the crossroads in front of the courthouse for after-hours payments. However, cash should not be deposited in the drop box. Payments can be mailed to 2219 Payne St, Tell City IN 47586 (address shown on tax invoices) or paid at our local banks with tax coupon at Fifth Third Bank, German American Bank and Old National Bank. Checks must correspond to the exact amount of tax due (no cash).

Payments can also be made online using a debit or credit card, but a convenience fee is charged by the company processing the transaction. The fee is 2.5% of the total when payments are made at the courthouse or online, and 4.95% when the taxpayer calls the company directly.

If a taxpayer wants a receipt returned to them, they must include a self-addressed, stamped envelope with their payment. Questions about paying property tax bills should be directed to the Treasurer’s Office at (812) 547-4816 (Treasurer — Amanda F. Lasher).

Anyone who purchased a property, mortgaged, or refinanced with the bank on or after January 1, 2022, should apply for a Property and Mortgage Waiver if you haven’t already. Some of them are deposited when you bought the property, it is the responsibility of the owner. We also have exemptions for 65, blind and disabled, veterans, and solar energy.
