NEW CASTLE — The Lawrence County treasurer’s office will not be accepting any personal checks after this week.

Starting Monday, the office will not take a personal check at the counter or one that is postmarked later than Dec. 15.

The office will accept cash, money order, cashier’s check or credit card.

However, in order to save the costs associated with credit card tax payments, a fee will be applied to those paying with a credit card.

Any county property taxes not paid by Dec. 31 will be filed with the tax claim bureau and the property owner will incur additional costs.

More information is available by calling the office at (724) 656-2124.
