Dear county officials:
This is an invitation. It is free. No hidden gimmicks. County governments all over the state are invited to use a free tool provided by the Indiana General Assembly. In 2008, I authored legislation to allow, on a voluntary basis, monthly payment of real estate taxes by automatic deduction from a checking account. Millions of people choose to pay bills this way. I stress: This is voluntary, solely at the option of the taxpayer. The county only need pass an ordinance. A free model is available. Help yourself. Get that money rolling in every month instead of once or twice a year. And Porter County … please let me be the first to sign up.
