Property tax bills are due soon in Indiana

May 10th is the statutory deadline to pay Spring installments of your annual Indiana property tax bills.  Most counties have begun mailing their tax notices this week in order to have them in taxpayers hands in a timely fashion.  Depending on where your property is located, you will be receiving one soon.

If there is any question to whether you may be overpaying your property taxes, now is the time to give us a call.  Once tax bills are released, there is a very small window of opportunity to file an appeal.  It is only 45 days from the mailing date of either the tax bills or a notice of assessment change.  If you don’t file in that time frame, you can lose out on an entire year of potentially eligible tax savings.  In addition, there could be other opportunities at reductions depending on your property type and how it is assessed.

Our team of property tax consulting experts will review your situation and help determine whether appealing your property could be beneficial for your business.  We pride ourselves on making sure our clients have the lowest property tax liability possible.  With increased tax rates, changes in tax law, and numerous additional taxes and fees appearing on many 2018 tax bills, it is important to make sure you are minimizing every expense.  Innovative Property Tax Solutions is the expert team you need in your corner.  We have the honesty, professionalism, experience and knowledge you need to ensure you are paying your fair share and nothing more.  A few minutes with one of our experts could help save you big.

Look Beyond Acquisition Price to Reduce Property Tax Assessments – David A Seuss – Multifamily Executive

Multifamily property owners and appraisers are often creatures of habit. They generally calculate a property’s value for tax purposes the same way they do for an investment.

Property tax assessment at center of issue with County and Belterra – Vevay Media Group

A long running dispute between the county and Belterra Resort Indiana, LLC may result in the county repaying property tax money to the Casino.

The casino contends that if it had been correctly assessed at the lower rate it maintains, then it would not have paid the amount of property taxes that it has – and the county should repay that overrage amount to the corporation.
