[s26] Sen. Eckerty: Legislation to Protect Hoosier Homeowners Moves to Governor’s Desk

Entry Description

STATEHOUSE (April 26, 2013) —State Sen. Doug Eckerty’s (R-Yorktown) legislation to protect Hoosier homeowners cleared the Senate and House of Representatives today. Senate Bill 152 now moves to the governor’s desk for final consideration.

SB 152 assists homeowners who have successfully appealed an assessor’s overvaluation of their property. If the Property Tax Assessment Board of Appeals (PTABOA) determines a home’s value on an appeal by a taxpayer, the local assessor must provide evidence if he or she values the home above the board’s finding in a later assessment.

“This essentially shifts the burden of proof from the homeowner to the county or township assessor that makes the initial assessment,” Eckerty said. “From there, that assessor must substantiate his proof with the PTABOA to verify that the values of homes and properties are not overestimated. That means fewer homeowners will have to appeal their assessment year after year.”

Rep. Bill Davis (R-Portland) is the bill’s sponsor in the House of Representatives.
