State tax bills are in the mail

June 17, 2013 – TaxTalk Blog

Approximately 3.1 million individual income tax returns are filed with Indiana every year. It’s no surprise that those expecting refunds file early on, while those owing additional tax tend to file around the mid-April filing due date. While about 98 percent of Hoosiers pay their taxes in full by the time they file, that leaves two percent who don’t. This week the department began issuing more than 52,000 tax bills to that two percent.

If you’re among those folks receiving a tax bill, you owe more than $100, and you cannot pay that amount in full, you can visit our website 24/7 and set up a payment plan.

Here are some things you need to know:

  • Your bill has to be for $100 or more (if you owe less than $100 call 317-232-2165 to see if you qualify for a special-case payment arrangement for a duration of three months).
  • You must pay 10 percent down.
  • You can take up to 12 months to pay (if you owe more than $500, you can extend that to 24 months).
  • Penalty and interest charges apply.
  • Monthly payments may be made electronically.
  • If you have an existing payment plan with the department, you may be able to roll the new billing into it. Call the department at 317-232-2165 for assistance if you want to take advantage of this option.
