Marshall County Treasurer Penny Lukenbill requested the extension of business hours to accommodate the payment of property taxes this spring and fall.
Lukenbill told the commissioners that the auditor delivered the tax duplicate to the treasurer’s office last week. The tax bills are now being created to be mailed out to taxpayers.
Lukenbill requested that the treasurer’s office be open on Saturday, May 9 from 9 a.m. to noon. She also asked that hours be extended on Friday, May 8 and Monday, May 11 from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. ET.
The same concept would be applied in November when the fall installment is due. The office would be open Saturday, Nov. 7 from 9 a.m. to noon and Friday, Nov. 6 and Monday, Nov. 9 from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. ET.
She explained that this is a practice performed by the treasurer’s office in previous years.
The commissioners unanimously approved the hour extension on the days proposed. The Teacher’s Credit Union has agreed to accept payments at all of their branches. The IAB Bank in Bourbon will also be accepting payments. The spring installment is due May 10.
