Fall property tax bill due date approaching

FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) The deadline to pay fall property tax bills is rapidly approaching.

Allen County Treasurer Bill Royce issued a reminder Tuesday that payments must be in the treasurer’s office or postmarked by November 13, 2017 in order to avoid a penalty. The office will be closed November 10 for Veterans Day.

The fall tax bill was mailed earlier this year along with the spring bill. If you have misplaced your bill, a new bill can be printed from the Treasurer’s Office website, www.allencountytreasurer.us.
