Fall property taxes for Kosciusko County will be due Nov. 12 for 2018 payable 2019 tax payments.

Only one tax bill is mailed each year, which includes both the spring and fall installment coupons. If you have a mortgage escrow to pay taxes, you will get a tax bill copy for your records with the words “For Information Only” typed across it. Note that if you paid off your mortgage and no longer escrow, check with your mortgage company to verify who is responsible to make the fall payment, according to a news release from the county treasurer.

In Person

Taxes may be paid on the main floor of the courthouse in the treasurer’s office at 100 W. Center St., room 215, Warsaw. Bring the entire statement for a receipt to be validated. There is a ground-level entrance on the west side of the courthouse and an elevator to reach the second floor where the treasurer’s office is located. An outside drop box is available for tax payments at the west entrance of the courthouse. The box is monitored by the surveillance cameras located outside the courthouse.  

By Mail

Tax payments may be mailed to Kosciusko County Treasurer, PO Box 1764, Warsaw, IN 46581.

If you require a receipt, mail the entire statement for a receipt to be validated with a self-addressed stamped envelope. Fall payments must be postmarked by Nov. 12. If mailing on Nov. 12, it is important to have the post office hand cancel the envelope with the postmark date to avoid late penalties, the release states. Property taxes received with a Nov. 13 or later postmark are subject to 5% or 10% penalties. The drop box at the west entrance to the courthouse can be an alternative to mailing the tax bill, especially on the final payment day.
