What is a Tax Warrant and what do I need to do if I receive one?
Tax Warrants are issued to individuals who have not paid the appropriate individual income taxes, sales tax liabilities or corporate tax liabilities as required by the Indiana Department of Revenue. The Department of Revenue will also add additional fees, penalties and interest associated with these assessments.
When a past due liability exists, the Department of Revenue will forward the warrant to the County Sheriff and the individual will receive notification from the Sheriff indicating the amount owed on the liability. It is the individual’s responsibility to contact the Sheriff’s Department to arrange for payment. All monies collected by the Sheriff are forwarded to the Department of Revenue, on behalf of the individual, and the Department of Revenue will apply the payment to the individual’s past due account.
All payments for tax warrants are to be by cash, money order or cashier’s check, payable to the Noble County Sheriff. Personal checks will not be accepted. Payments can be made Monday through Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. at the business office of the Noble County Sheriff’s Department.
