The Spring Installment of the tax bill is due May 10 and the Fall Installment is due November 10. If the due date falls on a Saturday, Sunday or Holiday, the deadline is extended to the next business day.

Payments received after those dates will incur a 10% penalty. The penalty will be reduced to 5% if the payment is made within the first 30 days after the due date.

The fee for duplicate tax bills is $1.50 per bill, payable in advance. Please use link below to view/pay tax bills.

Also between those dates, fax requests for tax amounts will not be handled. Staffing demands do not allow that service during these times. During all other times, faxes and/or mailed requests for billing amounts must include parcel ID numbers. Make all checks payable to La Porte County Treasurer and parcel ID numbers should be written on the memo line of your check.
