Hi Joan,

If you have paid your Spring and Fall tax bill for 2010, then your taxes are paid up to date. However, you need to take into consideration that we pay taxes in arrears in Indiana. That means that the taxes that you paid this year are really the 2009 taxes, payable in 2010, and that the taxes accrued in 2010 are payable in 2011. This is why when you sell a home in Indiana, and the taxes are prorated, you owe taxes through the day of closing, even though they aren't actually due until the following year. Let me know if you have any other real estate questions.

Sun Oct 10, 2010 It appears that you have paid the entire 561.72 in the spring. If you go to this website it is public record and you can even print it off.

If you are uncertain check with your local receiver of taxes office and inquire.
