Important Notes

The Notice of Assessment Form 11's will be mailed on April 29th, appeal deadline is June 15th, 2022. 

Residential real estate values have been steadily increasing over the past several years, as a result, so have assessed values.  Due to a number of factors (low supply, inflated costs of construction materials, historically low interest rates, etc.), 2021 saw unprecedented increases in home and property values.  The Metro Indianapolis Board of Realtors (MIBOR) indicates metro Indy year-over-year increases in median home value of 16.9% between January 2021 and January 2022.  Hamilton County data indicates a median home value increase of 13.2% and increase in price per square foot of 17.4% during the same time frame.  See the attached link to view the complete January 2022 MIBOR report.


Cyclical Reassessment
During statewide reassessments, county assessors physically inspect each property to ensure that records are correct.  Inspection accomplishes the gathering of data to value the property.  For example, does the property still have a free-standing garage and an above ground pool?  By confirming this information, assessors can ensure properties are properly valued.  Assessing officials will re-assess approximately 25% of the parcels in their jurisdiction (by property class codes) commencing May 1 to December 31 each year over a four year time frame.
