The Starke County Treasurer’s office is busy collecting property tax payments this week as the deadline to pay those bills is quickly approaching.
With the Monday, May 12 due date, Treasurer Kasey Clark told WKVI that drop boxes are available at banks in Knox, North Judson and the Bank of Monterey in Monterey. Those facilities will accept payments until their closing time on Monday, May 12. If you are mailing payments, the envelope must be postmarked May 12.
Payments will also be accepted in the office, but be prepared for long lines and a waiting period. The staff members attempt to process payments as quickly as possible. A drop box is also available outside the treasurer’s office.
One change Starke County property taxpayers are seeing on bills this year is the addition of the solid waste bills. Any delinquent solid waste bills will be sent by officials from the Starke County Environmental Management office.
