- General Procedures for Property Tax Collection IC 6-1.1-22
The Assessment to Property Tax Billing system works similar to a relay race. Each individual in the race is responsible for a leg, and if one falls behind in the race to the finish, those who follow must work harder to catch up to win the race. In the same way, local and state officials must work together, passing the baton from one office to the other to achieve timely billing. When there are delays at any point in the process, the subsequent responsibilities must be completed in a shortened time frame to maintain on-time billing.
This graphic shows the detailed flow of responsibilities and the statutory citations associated with each step in the process.
This webpage covers the basics surrounding municipal finance, including definitions, deadlines and structure of local budgets. It also shows samples of the budget forms used and explains the Department role in the budget review and certification process.
