GOSHEN — The Elkhart County Treasurer’s Office collected almost $1 million in property taxes using a new online system.

Treasurer Larry Ernest described Thursday, the last day to turn in payments, as “normal but very hectic.” The treasurer’s office launched a new website in April that allows county residents to view and pay their tax bills online.

Online payments have been available for about four years, Ernest said, but the new website proved to be more successful. The treasurer’s office collected slightly more than $1 million in taxes online from April 1, 2011, to March 31, he said.

“I expected the new site to collect more, but I didn’t know how much more it would be,” Ernest said, adding that he fielded several questions about navigating the new website.

The next installment of property taxes are due Nov. 13.

 A 15-year-old boy, seen sitting on a stretcher center, who stowed away in the wheel well of a flight from San Jose, Calif., to Maui is loaded into an ambulance at Kahului Airport in Kahului, Maui, Hawaii Sunday afternoon, April 20, 2014. The boy survived the trip halfway across the Pacific Ocean unharmed despite frigid temperatures at 38,000 feet and a lack of oxygen, FBI and airline officials said. FBI spokesman Tom Simon in Honolulu told The Associated Press on Sunday night that the boy was questioned by the FBI after being discovered on the tarmac at the Maui airport with no identification.
