Will COVID-19 Impact Your Eligibility for an Indiana Property Tax Exemption?

Indiana property tax exemption applications must be filed on or before April 1, 2021. To grant an exemption, a county’s property tax assessment board of appeals will look at both the physical status and use of a property as of January 1, 2021 — and will consider its use during the prior calendar year. Many Indiana taxpayers were in lockdown or working remotely for most of the past year. How will that situation impact granting of property tax exemptions this year (for taxes due and payable in 2022)? There is no one-size-fits-all answer: whether the coronavirus has an impact on exemption decisions will depend on the property, its use, the type of exemption requested, the evidence presented and how a particular assessor and county board chooses to apply the exemption statutes based on the specific facts.
