From the Indiana Lawyer:
Indiana legislators are considering creating an amnesty period for homeowners and businesses to pay overdue property taxes without the penalty fees and interest.
Senate Bill 523 approved 48-0 by the Indiana Senate recently would allow counties to waive penalties and interest if overdue taxes are paid by May 2020.
A state report shows that Indiana’s 92 counties reported $345 million in delinquent property taxes and $175 million in late fees and interest owed in 2018. Northwestern Indiana’s Lake County had the highest in both categories, with $96 million in overdue taxes and $102 million in penalty fees.
