An appeal of the current year's real property assessment may have two different filing deadlines which are based on when the Form 11 Notice of Assessment is mailed. If Form 11 is mailed before May 1 of the assessment year, the filing deadline is June 15 of that year. If Form 11 is mailed after April 30 of the assessment year, the filing deadline is June 15 in the year that the tax statements are mailed (IC 6-1.1-15-1.1).
After you’ve filed your appeal, you should receive a postcard in the mail letting you know that we’ve received it. Appeals are worked in the order they are received and are assigned to appeals representatives by township. Your representative will reach out to you to go over your concerns, set up a field visit, and may request additional information from you.
