Thanks to changes in tax law, people are rushing out to pay their bills.

People have always been able to deduct the amount they pay in local and state taxes from their paychecks. But thanks to the new tax legislation President Donald Trump signed into law last week, that amount will cap off at $10,000. Allen County Treasurer Rachael Gilroy says that while there usually is a rush of people making payments at the end of the year, they have seen an increase in people trying to pay off not only this year and 2018's, but also 2 or more years in advance.

"The Ohio Department of Taxation has indicated that we can only accept payment for taxes that have been billed, that have accrued," says Gilroy. "Only the 2017 amounts that are due in 2018 are the only amounts we are able to accept this year."

Gilroy says the County Treasurers began mailing out the 2018 bills this week.
