Revisions to the federal income tax code will significantly impact the deductibility of state and local income taxes as well as property taxes in 2018.

Christine Altman, president of the Hamilton County Commissioners, said the last version of the legislation places a cap of $10,000 on aggregate of these taxes after 2017.

“We anticipate that many county taxpayers, on advice of their financial advisors, may wish to prepay an estimate of their 2018 property taxes prior to the end of 2017. Accordingly we have asked Jennifer Templeton, Hamilton County treasurer, to compile procedures for taxpayers to follow in making property tax prepayments,” Altman said.

The prepayment information includes:

  • Advance Property Tax Payments: Advance payments for property taxes are accepted in Hamilton County. Payments can be made in any amount that the taxpayer wishes to pay to the Hamilton County Treasurer.
  • Payment options: Pay in the office with Cash, Cashier Check, Money Order or Personal Checks; Mail payment to Hamilton County Treasurer, 33 N. 9th Street, Ste 112, Noblesville, IN 46060; Pay taxes online by credit card or E-checks through the county website
  • Information needed for payment to be applied:  16-digit county parcel number, location address and the owners name or a copy of the past years bill.

If a taxpayer pays more than the 2017 pay 2018 calculated amount the amount will be applied to the full year tax and will then create a treasurer’s surplus to be issued back to the homeowner on record at the time of settlement.

Office hours for the Hamilton County Treasurer are 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday-Friday. The office will be closed on Dec 25th and 26th
