Xenia, OH — Greene County Treasurer, Dick Gould, reminds residents that real estate tax statements for the first half of 2014 have now been mailed and are due February 20, 2015. Over 41,000 bills have been sent. “Bills were mailed a bit later than in past years,” stated Gould. “We changed our print vendor and had to work through the initial data mapping, causing the delay. However, this will not be an issue in the future.” The change in vendors will save the county approximately 10-percent in processing costs.
There are several ways for residents to pay their tax bills. “We have tried to make it as convenient as possible for residents of Greene County to pay their bills,” Gould stated. “People can pay online at http://www.co.greene.oh.us/, by mail, in-person, or via the locked drop box located outside the office.”
“The curbside drop box lets anyone with checks avoid lines inside,” Gould shared. “People don’t even have to leave their cars to use the curbside drop box and they can be assured that their payment will be secure and processed promptly.”
Residents should note that for the first time in years, Fifth Third Bank will not be accepting payments, due to their concern of liability for the undeposited amounts.
The Treasurer’s Office hours are 7:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. Monday – Friday. There will be extended hours from 8:00 a.m. until noon on Saturday, February 14, and from 7:30 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. on February 18, 19, and 20. For more information contact the Greene County Treasurer’s Office at 937-562-5017.
