INFORMATION REGARDING RECENT ASSESSMENTS

As many have noticed, some assessments in Dearborn County have increased in value.  While many factors affect the assessments of your home, the primary reason for increase in values is due to the real estate market of 2021. This value increase is not necessarily due to home improvements but may be if there has been remodeling or additions.

The Assessor's office utilizes the Mass Appraisal Method. This involves conjunctively
looking at several properties within an area while taking into consideration the age, condition, and grade of the structure.  We then use this data to determine whether the value of a property should change to match the market value of the recent sales. Finally, we submit this comparison of sales and assessed values to the Department of Local Government Finance for review. The DLGF determines whether the ratio study that was submitted is just and fair to all property owners. Once approved by the DLGF, the county can roll the new values.

Some may feel that the assessed value is higher than the market value of their property. As a taxpayer you have the right to file an appeal. The necessary forms to file an appeal with the Dearborn County Assessor can be found on the DLGF website at https://www.in.gov/dlgf/8516.htm or follow the direct links below:

Form 130 - Taxpayer's Notice to Initiate an Appeal (PDF)

Form 134 -Joint Report by Taxpayer/Assessor to the County Board of Appeals of a Preliminary Informal Meeting

Both forms will need to be completed.

Forms can be mailed to Dearborn County Assessor's Office 165 Mary St. Room 203 Lawrenceburg, Indiana 47025, faxed to (812)532-3214, emailed to macra@dearborncounty.in.gov, or dropped into the center drop box located outside the courthouse entrance labeled "Assessor/Recorder".

Appeal forms are due no later than June 6, 2022
