Van Wert County Treasurer, Beverly Fuerst, has announced that real estate tax bills have been mailed and are due Wednesday, Feb. 13, 2013.

If a property owner has not received a tax bill they should call the Treasurer's Office immediately at (419) 238-5177. In the case of mailed payments, they must be postmarked on or before Feb. 13, 2013, to avoid any penalty. For your convenience, First Bank of Berne will be accepting tax payments this year.
