[s30] Full Senate Approves Sen. Schneider’s Provision to Examine Property-Tax Assessments

Entry Description
STATEHOUSE (Feb. 26, 2013) — Legislation amended by State Sen. Scott Schneider (R-Indianapolis) to review certain Marion County property-tax assessments today passed the Senate 50-0.

Part of Senate Bill 494 requires that the state create a five-year pilot program to review property-tax assessments in townships where residents have noticed higher than normal assessed value growth. The program would look specifically at Center, Wayne and Washington townships in Marion County.

“Hoosiers taxpayers have benefited greatly from Indiana’s property-tax caps,” Schneider said. “After talking with several residents throughout my district, however, it appears that significant increases in some assessed values are still alarming taxpayers. We need to make sure dramatic increases in assessments are not being used to circumvent property-tax caps. I am pleased this issue will be examined to ensure that all taxpayers are treated fairly.”

Schneider said the findings of the pilot program will determine the fairness of the assessment system not just for residents in the townships examined, but for taxpayers across the state.
