Real Estate Assessments - General Information
Indiana County has more than 48,000 parcels of real estate. It is the duty of the Assessment Office to value all parcels uniformly and fairly for real estate tax purposes. The last countywide reassessment was completed in 2015. Evaluating all property in Indiana County at 2015 market values satisfies uniformity, mandated by law.
While property is appraised at 2015 market values, it is taxed at its assessed value, which now is 100 percent of the 2015 market value. It is important to remember, especially when filing an appeal, the duty of the assessment office is to determine property value. Under law, the assessment office cannot and does not raise or lower property taxes.
The 2017 tax year billing and payment period is underway. The appeal window for 2017 has closed, but the appeal period is underway for property owners to request reconsideration of assessed property values for the 2018 tax year. Find details of the appeal process here on the 2018 Property Tax Assessment and Appeal Process page .
The deadline to apply for the Clean and Green Program for 2018 is June 1, 2017.

An additional responsibility of a county auditor has is to make sure vendors and other entities get the appropriate licenses. Most jurisdictions require vendors to get licenses to buy and sell merchandise. There are also extra licenses that a vendor needs to sell specific items such as firearms, tobacco and alcohol. In some counties, auditors are also responsible for making sure dog owners get licenses to have their dogs in the county. This is helpful to the dog owner because the auditor issues a tag with the owner’s name and address with the license. If animal control finds a lost licensed dog, the county can get the owner’s information from the tag and call the owner instead of having to take the dog to the pound.
One of the other tasks a county auditor has to do is assist the public with searches for public records. People often want to know the tax value of property before purchasing a home or parcel of land. Other people may need a property map in order to have the land surveyed. The auditor can help the public look up the documents in the auditor’s office
