Marshall County Treasurer Angie Birchmeier announced that the Marshall County Treasurer’s Office is now open to the public. The 2019 Payable 2020 Tax Payments are due May 11, 2020. Due to the COVID-19 Crisis, residents are urged to pay their spring tax payments by mail.
Governor Eric Holcomb granted a 60-day waiver of penalties for NON-ESCROW tax bills only; although residents who have the ability to pay on-time are urged to do so. Property taxes fund Marshall County, as well as the cities and towns in it, schools, libraries and emergency services.
Payments are still accepted through the regular United States Post Office via check, money order or cashier’s check. Credit or debit cards may be used online at www.co.marshall.in.us by clicking on Property Taxes (convenience fees may apply).
Additionally, through May 11, 2020, the Town of Bremen and First Merchants Bank in Bourbon, have agreed to accept tax payments. In order to pay at these collection points, residents MUST include their tax payment, coupon (and a self addressed, stamped envelope only if a receipt is requested) in a sealed envelope. Residents are also able to pay at ANY Teachers’ Credit Union location. Please remember to use the drive-up only at any of these locations, since their lobbies may remain closed during this time.
For the public’s convenience, the Marshall County Treasurer’s Office has installed dropboxes at both the north and south entrances of the Marshall County Building. These boxes are located between the doors, in the vestibule. The locked boxes will be checked multiple times daily. Additionally, there is an existing dropbox on the outside of the south side of the building, near the Prosecuting Attorney’s Office.
If residents plan to pay in person, there will be safety precautions in place: only a limited amount of people will be allowed in the building and in the Treasurer’s Office at any one time, they will be required to wear a mask and maintain proper social distancing after going through security. The Treasurer’s Office will only have 2 windows open to process in-person payments.
Residents are welcome to call us at 574-935-8520 with any questions or concerns. We appreciate the public’s patience and understanding during this difficult time.
