The information provided in these databases is public record and available through public information requests. The Department of Local Government Finance has compiled this information in an easy-to-use format to assist Hoosiers in obtaining information about property taxes.
When looking for an assessed value, keep in mind that the assessed value for a particular year (for instance 2015) is the value upon which taxes are based in the following year (i.e. 2016). In other words, for the tax bill you received and paid in 2016, the assessed value is listed as the 2015 assessed value. In most cases, the most important value to note in the table listed in the search is the line marked "Assessed Value Total Land and Improvements." This line will be highlighted in yellow and is the equivalent of the property's gross assessed value as shown on the Notice of Assessment or Tax Bill.

The data contained in these searches comes directly from each county, so the format in the database may vary. If you search is not yielding results, try a partial search by using just the street name without direction or type. (For example, if the address is "123 Main St.", try inputting "123 Main".) You can also try using part of your last name instead of your full first and last name. If you are still unable to access the information, please contact the Department’s Data Analysis team at Data@dlgf.in.gov.
