Please be made aware that there are fraudulent tax lien notices being sent out in an attempt to collect money for a "TAX ASSESSMENT SECURITIES" or "TAX LIEN UNIT/TAX PROCESSING SERVICE". These notices mention Grant County in an attempt to deceive individuals. If you receive such a notice and you are unsure of the validity of the notice, please check with the Sheriffs Department. If it is fraudulent, please notify the Sheriffs Department to help attempt to locate the responsible party for possible criminal action.

What penalties will be applied to my property taxes if I fail to pay by the date they are due?
If an installment of real property taxes is completely paid on or before the date 30 days after the due date and the taxpayer is not liable for delinquent property taxes first due and payable in a previous installment for the same parcel, the amount of the penalty is equal to 5% of the amount of delinquent taxes. Otherwise, the amount of the penalty is equal to 10% of the amount of delinquent taxes. Also, with respect to property taxes due in two equal installments, on the day immediately following the due dates of the first and second installments in each year following the year of the initial delinquency, an additional penalty equal to 10% of any taxes remaining unpaid will be added. A property may become subject to a tax sale if the taxes remain unpaid (IC 6-1.1-24-1).
NOTE: If you own property in Grant County and do not receive a tax bill in the mail by May 1st, please contact our office. It is likely that the mailing address on file with the Auditor's office was not valid or current at the time of printing and the statement has been returned to our office.
YOU WILL ONLY RECEIVE ONE TAX BILL FOR THE YEAR.
FAILURE TO RECEIVE A TAX STATEMENT BY MAIL DOES NOT RELIEVE TAXPAYER OF THE RESPONSIBILITY FOR PAYMENT AND PENALTIES WHEN DELINQUENT.
