The deadline to pay the spring installment of property taxes is looming.
The Starke County Treasurer’s office will be open until 4 p.m. CT today to accommodate taxpayers in making that payment on time. The last day that tax bills can be paid without a penalty is Monday, May 11 from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. CT. Fall installments may also be paid at the same time, if desired.
Payments may be left in the drop box outside the treasurer’s office in Starke County Annex Building in Knox. If the staff receives the payment in the drop box before 8 a.m. on Tuesday, no penalty will be assessed.
The Bank of Monterey branches in Monterey and North Judson will accept tax payments along with 1st Source Bank in Knox, First Farmers Bank in Knox and North Judson and Demotte State Bank in Knox. Treasurer Kasey Clark asks that a self-addressed stamped envelope be included so a receipt can be mailed.
