- The Indiana Department of Local Government Finance (“DLGF”) has set up a webpage to track the mailing of notices of real estate assessment changes by Indiana counties (Form 11). The DLGF continually updates the tracking webpage as responses are received from counties.
Upon receiving a notice of assessment change, Indiana property tax appeals may be filed at the county level. The statutory time to appeal is short: just 45 days from the assessor’s notification of the assessment change. Generally, if an Indiana property owner has received a notice of assessment change from a county and has not appealed within 45 days of its issue date, the assessment change is final and cannot be appealed.
- Note that the DLGF’s tracking is for notices of Indiana real estate assessment changes.
- Personal property notices of assessment changes may be mailed by Indiana county assessors at any time throughout the year.
- Various assessment change notice forms may be issued by Indiana county assessors, but the most common are the Form 11, Forms 113 or 113/PP (personal property) and Form 122 (omitted or undervalued property), or the property tax bills if no other notice has been issued.
