Deductions work by reducing the amount of assessed value subject to property taxation.
Information about available deductions and their eligibility requirements is available on the Department of Local Government Finance's website at http://www.in.gov/dlgf/2344.htm.
To file for the Homestead Deduction or another deduction, contact your county auditor, who can also advise if you have already filed. To locate your local officials, please see http://www.in.gov/dlgf/2440.htm.
