Real Estate Assessments – General
Thank you for your interest in the Indiana County Assessment Office. Indiana County has more than 45,000 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 1968. Evaluating all property in Indiana County at 1968 market
values satisfies uniformity, mandated by law.

While property is appraised at 1968 market values, it is taxed at its assessed value.  Which is currently 100% of the 1968 market value. It is important to remember, especially when filing an appeal; the assessment office’s duty is to determine property value. Under law, the assessment office cannot and does not raise or lower property taxes.
Real Property Taxation
Real estate taxes are an important revenue source for county government, eleven school districts, and thirty-seven municipalities within Indiana County. White Township is the only municipality not imposing 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. A mil(.001) being equivalant to one tenth of one cent. Real estate tax billing occurs twice annually. County and municipality taxes are issued in the spring and school taxes mailed between July and August.
