It would seem that there are many who are not happy with their new property tax assessment here in VigoCounty.
With a new Property Tax Assessment board of appeals in place, VigoCounty’s assessor is starting to schedule informal hearings on nearly 1,200 appeals for 2012 property taxes. However, the county still has about 700 appeals for 2011 property taxes remaining to resolve, both with informal and formal hearings. A formal hearing is held after no resolution is made in an informal hearing.
The board does not make a decision at the time of the hearing. That is done in a work session held later.
The whole process could take a couple of months.
