The following is a statement issued Monday by the Allen County Treasurer’s office:
Chief Deputy Treasurer William Royce wants to remind everyone that only two weeks remain to pay their property taxes. Due to November 10 falling on Sunday, and Monday November 11 being Veterans Day, tax payers have until November 12, to make their fall property tax payment.
Payments must be in the Treasurer’s office or postmarked by November 12, 2013 to avoid penalty.
A new payment method is now available! Tax payments can be paid right from your smart phone or mobile device.
Simply type ACIMAP.US/MPATI into your device’s web browser and you can download your tax bill, or pay by electronic check or credit card.
"We constantly look for more convenient ways for taxpayers to pay their taxes," said Royce, "With this new phone app, people can look up and pay taxes from anywhere in the world where they can find a signal."
Complete details can be found on the Treasurer’s website.
