In Indiana, reassessment is the periodic re-inspection of real property to check for errors, pick up new construction and improvements, and to clean up the county's data. The last General Reassessment was completed on March 1, 2012. That same month Senate Enrolled Act 19 was signed into law replacing Indiana's General Reassessment with Cyclical Reassessment. In Cyclical Reassessement, reassessment will be apportioned over four years as opposed to the traditional 20 month timeframe. Cyclical Reassessment began on July 1, 2014 and one-fourth of the parcels in the county will be reassessed each year over the following four years.
Trending is the annual process of valuing real property. To conduct trending, the assessor's office compares assessed values to real estate sales data, then adjusts values if necessary - upward or downward - to reflect market conditions for the assessment period. Assessments are then reviewed for statistical measures of accuracy, fairness, and equitability between properties. For more information on trending, click here
During reassessment, our office will send field agents to examine and inspect the exterior of every property and interview the property owner to obtain information about the interior. If no one is available to answer the questions at the time of our inspection, we will leave a door hanger. This information is vital to our efforts, since it provides us with information about the interior features and if any changes have been made to the interior of the home. We allow taxpayers to fill out the doorhanger online by clicking the link at the top of the webpage.
