At this busy time of the year, we’re all looking for ways to save a few minutes in an already packed day. And while we’re all preparing for the holidays, we’re faced with the unfortunate reality that property taxes are due in mid-January. The good news is… Heartland Bank is here to help! In partnership with the Franklin County Treasurer’s Office, Heartland will be accepting Property Tax payments at each of our 11 branch offices from December 23, 2013 through January 21, 2014.
“This program provides a valuable service to Franklin County homeowners by offering the convenience and comfort of a face-face transaction within the taxpayers local community,” according to Franklin County Treasurer Edward Leonard. “We’re excited to partner with Heartland Bank, one of our local community banks, to assist property owners who may want an alternative way to pay.”
- Any Franklin County resident may pay their tax bill at any Heartland Bank location
- Current Franklin County tax bill is required
- Validated receipt will be provided
- No cash payments from non-customers
- Lobby Hours of Operation (Monday – Thursday, 9 a.m. – 5 p.m., Friday, 9 a.m. – 6 p.m., and Saturday, 9 a.m. – noon)
“Heartland is pleased to work with Treasurer Leonard’s office on this initiative. When the larger banks decided not to aid the tax payers of Franklin County by accepting their payments locally, the Treasurer turned to Heartland. As Central Ohio’s Community Bank, it was the right thing for us to do,” said Scott McComb, Chairman, President and CEO of Heartland Bank.
While Heartland does not seek to emulate larger financial institutions, we continue to define ourselves as a customer-oriented small business and consumer bank, with strong relationships that are enhanced through well-trained, caring employees with unquestionable integrity who practice sound and innovative banking principles. Feel free to stop by any of our 11 central Ohio branch locations this holiday season.
