The Department of Local Government Finance today
announced that for the first time since 2002, property tax bills in 90 counties
have been issued on-time, resulting in the normal May 10 due date. This is the
second consecutive year the majority of counties have achieved on-time billing,
representing a stabilization of the property tax assessment to billing cycle.
Last year, 85 counties billed on-time, while only two counties – Kosciusko and
Owen – billed on-time in 2009. No county achieved on-time billing in 2008.
Let’s hope that this remains true during the 2012 reassessment.
