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.

Real Property Taxation

The real estate tax is an important revenue source for county government, 11 school districts, and 37 municipalities within Indiana County. White Township is the only municipality that does not collect a real estate tax. Tax rates are established annually by each of the taxing bodies based upon their budgetary needs.

Tax rates are expressed in mils or millage. One mil ($0.001), is one-tenth of one cent. Real estate taxes are billed twice annually. County and municipal taxes are issued in the late winter or early spring and school tax bills are mailed in July or August.​​​​​​​​
