This is an update to advise taxpayers in Marion County that the Marion County Treasurer's Office has begun mailing the 2007 (pay 2008) First Installment Tax Bills this week with a due date of December 16.

The County confirmed that the tax bill is a provisional bill based on one half of the previous 2006 (pay 2007) annual tax liability, because neither the March 1, 2007 assessments nor the 2007 (pay 2008) tax rates have been determined/finalized. The provisional tax amounts will be available on the Marion County Treasurer's website after December 1.

See: www.indygov.org/treas

The deadline to file appeals contesting the 2007 (pay 2008) assessments will be next year, 45 days from the date the Second Installment Tax Bill is issued.
