Property tax bills to go out today


Jackson County residents who own property should receive their 2022 property tax bills in the coming days.

Tax bills, which are mailed once a year, went to the post office today, Jackson County Treasurer Kathy Hohenstreiter said Tuesday afternoon.

The bill will include remittance statements for the spring installment due May 10 and the fall installment due Nov. 10. Payments must be received or federally postmarked by the deadline to avoid late penalties.

Based on Jan. 1, 2021, ownership, payments made in the treasurer’s office in the Jackson County Courthouse, 111 S. Main St., Brownstown, must be in the form of cash, check, money order or cashier’s check.

Property owners also may pay their bill online by visiting the Jackson County website at and clicking on the button on the right hand corner of that page. A convenience fee may be assessed depending upon how you pay your bill. The fee is not part of your bill, and Jackson County will not receive any portion of it.

State Bank of Medora and The Peoples Bank in Seymour, Brownstown and Crothersville also are accepting property tax payments, Hohenstreiter said.

Payments are considered timely if they are:

  • Received in the treasurer’s office by closing on the deadline date
  • Received in the drop box located at the back entrance of courthouse on Sugar Street in Brownstown by midnight on the deadline date
  • Federally postmarked by the deadline and mailed to Jackson County Treasurer, 111 S. Main St., Suite 124, Brownstown, IN 47220.
