Pre Pay Program

 TAX INSTALLMENT PREPAYMENT

Since 1995 Taxpayers in Van Wert County have had the option to pay their taxes monthly into an escrow account at the Treasurer’s office.

The Plan

This Tax Installment Prepay Plan divides the Annual Real Estate Taxes in 12 portions. Each taxpayer makes five (5) installments per half and then the final bill shows the Half Tax less all prepayments and the balance due. There is no penalty if one of the payments is late or missed as long as the total Half Tax in paid in full prior to the closing date for that half.

Eligibility

To be eligible for this TIP Plan a taxpayer needs to have their taxes paid for the current Tax Year.

Payment Method

Taxpayers receive a coupon book with ten (10) coupons, enough for the entire year. Alternative pay methods are available. A taxpayer may use one of the following methods to pay:

* Pay by cash at the Treasurer’s Office

* Pay by mail.

* Utilize ACH program where payment is automatically debited from your checking account, monthly. Click Here for Form

* County Employees may pay by payroll deduction.
