Indiana County Board of Assessment Appeals
Thank you for your interest in the Indiana County Assessment Office. Indiana County is comprised of over 45,000 parcels of real estate. The primary responsibility of the Indiana County Assessment Office is to value all real estate uniformly and fairly for ad valorem (at value) tax purposes. The last countywide reassessment was 1968. Evaluating all property in Indiana County at 1968 market values satisfies uniformity, mandated by law. While property is appraised at 1968 market values, it is taxed at its assessed value, which is currently 100% of the 1968 market value. It is important to remember, especially when filing an appeal; the assessment office’s duty is to determine property value. Under law, the assessment office cannot and does not raise or lower property tax rates.
Real Property Taxation
Real estate taxes are an important revenue source for county government, eleven school districts, and thirty-seven municipalities within Indiana County. White Township is the only municipality not imposing a real estate tax. Tax rates are levied annually by each of the taxing bodies based upon their budgetary needs. Tax rates are expressed in mills. A mill (.001) being equivalent to one tenth of one cent. Two tax billings occur annually. County and municipal taxes are sent in the spring and school taxes are generally mailed between July and August.
