New tax duplicates for general property taxes are prepared each year by the county auditor, and are to be delivered to the treasurer on or before March 15, for collection of taxes during the year. When delivered to the treasurer, the duplicates show the name of each taxpayer, description of the property assessed, assessed valuation, exemptions and deductions and the taxes payable. [IC 6-1.1-22-3] General property taxes are payable in two equal installments. The first installment becomes delinquent after the tenth day of May and the second installment becomes delinquent after the tenth day of
November. Most counties now store an electronic copy of their duplicate on their server and back up to some type of offsite storage.
