DLGF Publishes Guidance on Legislative Changes Effecting the Mailing of Tax Bills


TO:         All County Assessors, Auditors, and Treasurers

FROM:  Micah G. Vincent, Commissioner

DATE:    May 19, 2014

On March 25, 2014, Governor Pence signed into law House Enrolled Act 1234 (“HEA 1234”), Section 1 of which amends IC 6-1.1-22-8.1 so that beginning with the 2014 Pay 2015 cycle, tax bills are to be mailed or transmitted, as applicable, one time each year at least 15 business days before the date on which the first or only installment is due. The amendment is effective July 1, 2014, but will not affect 2013 Pay 2014 bills. Under prior law, the bills were to be mailed or transmitted at least 15 calendar days before the first or only installment was due.

Please note that this memorandum is intended to be an informative bulletin; it is not a substitute for reading the law.
