November 25, 2009


Deduction filing deadline nears for Indiana property owners


Hartford City, (November 25, 2009) – While Indiana real property owners have until the end of the year to file for property tax deductions, Blackford County  Auditor Kathy Bantz is urging individuals to file as soon as possible.


“With the holiday season and winter weather approaching, property owners should file deduction applications as soon as they are able,” said Auditor Bantz. “We don’t want anyone to miss out on a deduction because they missed the application deadline.”


Deduction applications must be completed and dated by December 31, 2009 and filed with the County Auditor on or before January 5, 2010 for the taxpayer to receive the eligible deductions on 2010 property tax bills.

Deduction applications are available at the county auditor’s office or may be downloaded from the Department of Local Government Finance Web site,

In addition to meeting all other eligibility requirements for the desired deduction(s), the applicant for the deduction must own or be buying the property under contract on the date the application is filed in order to receive the deduction.


Persons filing for deductions on annually assessed mobile homes still are required to apply for the deduction during the 12 months before March 31 of each year.
