First Half Tax Bills Status

Due to software upgrades in both the Treasurer and Auditor's offices, the First half tax bills will be sent out later than normal. To ensure timely billing and processing this collection cycle under these new systems, the due date has been moved to January 30, 2015. At this point in time a specific mail date is unknown. As soon as the date is available the Treasurer's office will update our website with an expected mail date, as well as your ability to print and pay your Tax bill from your personal computer. Thank you for your patience as we go through this upgrade and transition in order to better serve the taxpayers of Franklin County.
