FAQs

Tax statements and payment coupons are mailed once per year in the spring.  That bill has two payment coupons to make a payment in May and November.  Notices are not sent when taxes are delinquent. Delinquent amounts will be shown on the next payment coupon. If property is eligible for tax sale, notices are sent prior to property being listed on tax sale list. 

A penalty of 5% of the unpaid balance will be added if you have no other delinquencies on that parcel and the taxes are paid within 30 days of the due date .  After 30 days the penalty amount is 10% of the unpaid balance.

Yes, we consider a payment "on time" if the envelope is postmarked on or before the due date.   Please be aware of postal deadlines and specific procedures when mailing your property tax bill.  We use the postmark as printed on the envelope when determining if a payment is on time.  (Please note:  Postmarks are valid for regular tax payments only and do not apply to properties going to tax sale.)

SRI Inc. handles both tax sales and commissioner's sales for Randolph County.  Visit the SRI Tax Sale FAQs for more information.

Based on the March 1st ownership year, taxes are due and payable the following year in two installments.  Tax bills are mailed once a year; both the 1st and 2nd installment payment coupons are included.  Due dates are on each installment statement.  Taxes not paid on or before the due date are subject to a penalty.

If possible you should bring the mobile home title to the Treasurer’s office to obtain a permit.  If no title is available we would need to prepare a letter stating all taxes were paid for three consecutive years for the license branch.   If you are moving the mobile home you will need to provide the new location address.  We also need the name of the current mobile home owner to verify the taxes have been paid.   To obtain a title transfer and/or moving permit you must have the full years taxes paid.  If it is after January 15th assessment date you must pay an estimated tax for that year. Permits are good for 30 days.

You should contact the Treasurers office at 765.584.0704.  We will verify your mailing address and mail a new bill out to you.  Failure to receive a tax statement by mail  does not relieve the taxpayer of the responsibility for payment and penalties when delinquent.

Mailing address changes are handled in the Treasurer’s office and the taxpayer should notify us.  The tax statement will continue to go to your former address unless our office is notified by you or the Post office returns your mail to us. You can call our office at 765-584-0704 or email at treasurer@randolphcounty.us

When making your payment in person, we will print a receipt out for you.  When mailing your payment  we will return a receipt if you send a stamped self-addressed envelope, otherwise your check will serve as your receipt.

If you purchase a property after the March 1st assessment date, then the previous owners name will appear on the bill.  The county is to show who the owner of record was as of March 1st.  You should expect the former owners name to be deleted the next year.

You can pay your bill by mail, in person at the Treasurer's office, at any Old National Bank Branch in Randolph County, Mainsource Bank in Lynn, or pay online with a credit card  or pay by phone using a credit card.  For more detailed information visit the Pay Your Property Taxes page.

We are accustomed to the services provided by our local community.  Schools, police , fire protection, libraries and roads are only a few of the amenities property taxes make possible.  Without property taxes, we couldn’t support the above services.

All real estate parcels that have a balance due from spring of the prior year or before are eligible for the tax sale.  Normally, tax sale notices are sent out in July if our county is collecting in May and November.  Upon certifying the tax amounts to the Auditor there is a $96.00 tax sale fee added.  You would have from July until the day of sale to pay the back taxes.  If your property does sell at the tax sale, you can still redeem the property but you will also have to pay tax sale fees and daily accruing interest (currently 10%).
