Assessor Operation Manual

Real Property Guidelines

The 2011 (sic 2012) rule and manual applies to the reassessment process, used by Indiana Assessors, for the 2012 pay 2013 property tax year. By statute, the Department of Local Government Finance adopted this new rule change July 1, 2009; however, due to a legislative delay, the reassessment commenced July 1, 2010. The 2011 (sic 2012) rule replaces the language used as part of the 2002 reassessment rule and manual. The 2011 (sic 2012) rule applies the appropriate "True Tax Value" definition for assessing property.

The Department has released updated cost schedules for use in the 2013 annual adjustment. Further updates will be released on an annual basis.
