Reassessment notices were mailed on 07/05/2022 to all property owners in Jasper County that receives a tax bill
These will be the only notices mailed out for the current reassessment. Property owners will have 90 days from the date of notice to appeal. The appeal deadline is 10/03/2022.
The notices are NOT tax bills. It is a document giving you notice that there has been a change to your market value, taxable value or ratio from our last reassessment which took place in 2015
Along with a change in value, there has also been a reduction to the millage rates. It is possible that your property taxes could go up. However, State law limits a taxable value increase by 15% for any unchanged properties from the last reassessment. Due to the millage changes, it is also possible that your taxes could go down from last year, depending on your location within the county. You may see that the notices have a market value and a taxable value. If this is the case, will be based on the lower of the two.
The notices you received shows a value and an assessment. The assessment is based on 4% or 6% of the value. To calculate the taxes, the assessment is multiplied by the millage rate. There are tax breaks for legal residence, homestead, and the local option sales tax credit. These will be deducted from your base tax.
The Auditor's office has a tax estimator page. However, it may take a couple of weeks for the estimator to be updated. You may call the Assessors office beginning 07/11/2022, if you need an estimate of your property taxes. Tax bills will not be mailed untill October 2022. You ONLY have untill October 3,2022 to appeal, If you wait until you receive your bill, it will be too late.
