Appeals

 Procedure for Appeal of Assessment

A taxpayer may appeal an assessment by filing a Form 130 with the township assessor, or the county assessor if the township is not served by a township assessor. An appeal of the current year's assessment may have two different filing deadlines which are based on when the Form 11 Notice of Assessment is mailed.

  • If the Form 11 is mailed before May 1 of the assessment year, the filing deadline is June 15 of that year.
  • If the Form 11 is mailed after April 30 of the assessment year, the filing deadline is June 15 in the year that the tax statements are mailed (IC 6-1.1-15-1.0).
  1. To Appeal the assessment, you must file a Form 130 with the County Assessor's Office for each parcel being appealed. 
  2. Hand Deliver or Mail the Form 130 to the County Assessor. When filing the Form 130 with the Assessor, please include any additional information to support the value you are requesting.
  3. The appeal of an assessment requires evidence relevant to the true tax value of the taxpayer's parcel as of the assessment date.
  4. Be sure to include the year for which you are filing the appeal.

Please Note: As a result of filing this petition, the assessment may increase, may decrease, or may stay the same.

All Form 130's must be signed by the petitioner or authorized representative. A power of attorney must be attached if an authorized representative is signing the appeal form and appearing before the PTABOA.

If you have questions regarding who can sign as an authorized representative, please see 52 IAC 2-2-4 or contact our office for more information.
