Real estate bills due on Friday

Hancock County real estate tax bills are due Friday.
Payments may be made at the treasurer’s office in the courthouse from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. For those paying by check, there is a drop box at the courthouse entrance.
Also, taxes may be paid at lending institutions.
Hancock County Treasurer J. Steve Welton said Fifth Third, Chase and Huntington banks have opted out of tax bill collections and will not accept payments this year.
Mailed payments must be postmarked with a U.S. Postal Service cancellation date of July 11.
Property owners who have not received a tax bill can call 419-424-7213. Failure to receive a tax bill does not preclude property owners from penalty and interest charges.
