Local reassessment continues despite postponement by State PDF Print E-mail
Wednesday, 05 August 2009 00:00
      Washington County Assessor Jason Cockerill said in a recent telephone interview that the property reassessment process will continue throughout the county even though the Indiana State Legislature changed the effective date from July 1, 2009, to July 1, 2010 in House Bill 1001 (ss).  According to Cockerill the majority of counties throughout the state are not as far along in their reassessments as is Washington County thus prompting the change.  
    Cockerill said that due to the fact that so much of the local assessment has been completed it will be more cost effective to complete the process with fewer people over a longer time period rather than stopping at this point and beginning again in 2010.
    According to information received from the Indiana Department of Local Government Finance (DLGF), any reassessment work done prior to July 1, 2010, will have to be reevaluated and updated.  DLGF gives counties three options to reevaluate their work:
A follow up property visit
A review of county building records
Use of aerial photography
    
    Cockerill indicated that the second two options are what he plans to implement since both can be completed without numerous physical visits and the cost of those visits.
    “Overall, Washington County is actually in better shape than most counties when it comes to this postponement.” explained Cockerill. “The silver lining is that we should be able to cut the number of people doing the reassessment because we can take more time and be more thorough in our visits; accuracy in very important.”
    In regards to the issue of accuracy, House Bill 1001 (ss) contains an interesting provision.  According to DLGF, “the bill . . . places the burden on the Assessor to prove the assessment is correct, if the assessed value of a property increases by more that 5 per cent over the previous year's assessed value.”
    Cockerill wants to let county residents know that despite what he calls “some recent unclear headlines,” reassessment personnel will still be canvassing the county.
    Cockerill also said that as far as he is aware, this postponement should not affect the mailing of property tax bills scheduled for the last half of August.
    For additional information on the property reassessment process, contact the Washington County Assessor's Office at 883-4000.
