Budget

The budget order is a critical document in calculating tax bills. The order contains the state's certification of the approved budget, the certified net assessed value, the tax rate and the levy for each fund of each taxing unit in a county. The order also gives the total tax rate for each taxing district.

Assessment

As part of the Annual Adjustment process, counties are responsible for submitting a ratio study and uniformity for all classes of property in all townships. The ratio study measures the accuracy and equity of assessments. It is determined by the formula: Assessed Value/Sale Price = Ratio. The assessment ratio for all properties in Indiana is to be 100%.

The accuracy of assessments refers to how close the assessments determined by local assessing officials are to market value-in-use.
