A reminder that the Doxpop offices will be closed on Monday, May 25th in observance of Memorial Day.

We understand that sometimes you have to deal with an emergency situation during a holiday so here's how to get help between over the holiday weekend:

We will not be monitoring phone lines, so you must use email. One of our managers will be checking email periodically every day. If you have a real emergency, please send an email to support@doxpop.com that contains a brief description of the problem and phone number we can call to reach you.

Please be respectful when using this option. It's for real emergencies that can't wait until Tuesday morning.

A problem with dates for users located outside of the Eastern Time Zone


Update: A fix was released on the evening of April 28th. 

With the release of our detail viewing browser for court records this morning, we made a mistake on the rendering of dates. The Dates are fine for most users, but if your computer's time zone setting is not Eastern Time, dates will render incorrectly.

Our developers are scrambling to fix this and release an update tonight. Until then dates will render as one day early if your computer is set to Central Time. (eg: 4/29 will show as 4/28)

We're sorry and working to fix this right away!

Get ready for the Case Detail Browser!


On Tuesday, April 28th, we released several new tools for viewing and organizing the results of your court case searches. These changes bring the court case section of our web site up to par with the Tax Warrant and Recorded Document sections, which already use these tools.

Here's a quick look at the changes:

Nothing about searching will change. However, when you see the results, they will be displayed in this format:
The key tools are:

  1. The ability to filter your results further and see only rows matching the text you enter.
  2. One click to save a case.
  3. One click to set an alert on a case.

When you click on one of the case numbers in your result list, you will see the results in our details browser, which reduces the number of clicks required to browse through results by letting you click through the details without returning to the result list:


The key tools are:
  1. The ability to browse details without returning to the result list for each case.
  2. A switch to toggle between our enhanced web view and the more traditional "CCS view".
  3. Save cases or set alerts with a single click.
  4. Print a "printer friendly" that doesn't include the navigation headers with one click.
Those of you who already use these tools in the Recorded Document and Tax Warrant section will feel at home right away. Everyone else will find that the new tools really help you do a better job with less effort.

Let us know how you like the new tools! ...Or if we messed something up in the transition, send us a "What were you thinking?" email to support@doxpop.com. If you're really excited, call us at 866-369-7671 to talk to our support staff. They've been socially distanced for weeks, so they are eager to talk to humans and adults.

Please vote now to avoid having to decide whether it is safe to vote later.


This is way outside of our usual purview, but important enough to take a moment for...

Indiana has rescheduled the primary election this year to June 2nd in an effort to get well past the peak of COVID-19 danger. There is still some uncertainty around what the procedures will be for in-person voting, and of course no way to know what the pandemic situation will be.

However, in the meantime, there is no reason you can't go ahead and cast an absentee ballot now so you know your vote will be counted even if the situation on June 2nd makes it difficult to safely vote in person.

To obtain an absentee ballot, you must fill out an application and mail it to your local Clerk's election office. The election office must receive this form on or before May 21, 2020, so don't wait. Do it now.

 This special form for the June 2020 election does not require that you state a reason for needing to vote absentee. Fill out the first page carefully, and then look on the second page to find the address of your county election office.

You can download the form at this link: ABS-MAIL PRIMARY 2020

New Tax Warrants Paused by the State


**
UPDATE 4/13/2020: We notice that new tax warrants and satisfactions have not stopped completely, but have slowed to a trickle in most counties. The Indiana DOR has indicated that they are continuing to take action in situations facing statutes of limitation. Please check for new warrants and satisfactions if your business depends on it. Doxpop continues to make new information available as soon as we receive it from the state.

More details about what the Indiana Department of Revenue is doing to assist Hoosiers with COVID-19 relief can be found here: https://calendar.in.gov/site/dor/event/dor-announces-helping-hoosiers-covid-19-relief-services

Original Post 3/25/2020:

Doxpop was notified this morning that given the current situation with COVID-19, the Indiana Department of Revenue has temporarily paused the sending of new tax warrants to be processed by County Circuit Court Clerks. This means we'll all see a drop-off in new tax warrants almost immediately across all counties until further notice. Once the Indiana DOR decides to resume sending tax warrants, we'll be notified and Doxpop's system will begin receiving new tax warrants as soon as they are available.

Researchers: Note that until a warrant is sent to the Circuit Court Clerk for recording, it does not become a judgment/lien. [ See IC 6-8.1-8-2(e) ]

For more information from the DOR, please visit https://www.in.gov/dor/ and check back here for updates.

For warrant-related questions or payments where county offices are unavailable, the DOR can be reached by phone at 317-232-2240 or through payment options at https://dorpay.dor.in.govIf you have questions or concerns about Doxpop's tax warrant services, please contact us at 866-369-7671 or support@doxpop.com.
