PROPERTY TAX BILL DUE DATES

Spring Installments are normally due on May 10th of each year and the fall installment is normally due on November 10th.  The State of Indiana sends Decatur County the information needed to prepare the property and real estate tax bills.  Unfortunately, in recent years, the State of Indiana has been very slow in sending that information to the Decatur County Treasurer. 
Once the information is received at the Treasurer's office, the tax bills are prepared and mailed to the taxpayers.  The due dates are listed on the tax bills.
