Second-half real estate tax bills mailed

News Journal

Second half 2015 real estate taxes payable on or before July 20, 2016 are currently being mailed, Clinton County Treasurer Jason F. Walt announced.

The tax statements are being delivered via US Postal Service to property owners who are responsible for paying property taxes directly to the county. The tax bills are once again being printed and mailed by Smart Bill and will have a new look and are partially blue in color.

Property owners who escrow with a bank or mortgage company will not receive a tax statement since those institutions are responsible for making payment to the county from their customer’s escrowed funds.

Any real estate owner not receiving a tax bill should call the Clinton County Treasurer’s Office at 937-382-2224. Tax bills less than 50 cents will not be generated or mailed or need to be paid until such time when they exceed that limit. Questions about the valuation, the tax calculation, CAUV or homestead should go to the Clinton County Auditor’s office at 937-382-2250.

Clinton County Treasurer’s office hours are 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday.

Parking around the courthouse will be extremely limited due to courthouse renovations during this tax collection period. Payments can be made at the treasurer’s office in the courthouse but taxpayers should consider mailing their tax payments to 46 S. South St, Suite 205, Wilmington OH 45177 or paying at any Peoples Bank location in Clinton County. Peoples Bank locations are: the main office in Wilmington at 48 N. South St., Wilmington Plaza at 1344 Rombach Ave., Wilmington West at 1288 Wayne Road, the New Vienna branch at 141 Main St., the Sabina branch at 135 N. Howard St. and the Blanchester branch at 125 W. Main St.

Second half real estate tax payments being mailed to the Clinton County Treasurer’s Office must have a US Post Office postmark of July 20, 2016 or prior to ensure timely payment, Walt said.
