VAN WERT — Van Wert County Treasurer, Nathan Vandenbroek, wants to notify all property owners that real estate taxes were mailed out on Jan. 7, 2019. Real estate taxes are due Wednesday Feb. 13.

If a property owner has not received a tax bill they should call the Treasurer’s Office at 419-238-5177. In the case of mailed payments, they must be postmarked on or before Feb. 13 to avoid any penalty. Credit card payments are accepted in the office or online on the Treasurer’s website at There is a 3 percent merchant fee for those who use a credit card.

Checks can be made out to ‘Nathan Vandenbroek’ or ‘Van Wert County Treasurer’s Office.’
