Assessor's Office

The Assessor’s Office is responsible for estimating the market value in use for each parcel of real property in the county. Currently Hendricks County has over 72,000 parcels. The State of Indiana determines the procedures, rules and regulations that all 92 countries must adhere to in the development of estimates of market values in use. The estimate of value in use becomes the assessed value (AV). An assessed value is determined for each parcel on an annual basis.  The Assessment date is January 1st of every year.

 

The Assessor’s Office in addition to determining assessed values for real estate, is responsible for the development of Business Personal Property assessed values.  Hendricks County has approximately 7,000 business personal property parcels.

PRESS RELEASE


The Hendricks County Assessor’s Office will send out the 2019 Notice of Assessment of Land and
Structures (Form 11) by Monday April 29th, 2019. The assessed value on the Form 11 is the starting point for
calculating annual property tax payments which will be due in 2020. THIS IS NOT A BILL, but rather a
Notice of Assessment change from 2018 to 2019. Assessed values may change when there is new
construction, additions, remodeling, land use changes or due to annual adjustments based on market trending.


***The Deadline to file a 2019 Residential or Commercial/Industrial Appeal is June 15, 2019***


If you do not believe that your new assessment is reflective of market value, please do not wait until
you receive your tax bill in the Spring of 2020 to file an appeal. An appeal filed in 2019 will be reviewed for
the 2019 pay 2020 assessment year. Appeals are year specific, based on the assessment year. Therefore, if
you have an appeal on file for a previous year that has not yet been addressed and you believe that the
current assessment is not reflective of the current market value, you will need to file a new appeal for the
current year. Multiple year appeals will be reviewed simultaneously.


To file an appeal complete a Form 130, found under Forms on the Assessor’s page of the county
website at www.co.hendricks.in.us. Please include any recent sale information, the requested value & the
reason for the appeal. If you have a recent appraisal, you may submit a copy for review along with the Form 130.


Assessment information may be reviewed by looking at the Assessor’s Property Record Card which is
located at the top of the Parcel Details page of the county website (www.co.hendricks.in.us). From the Home
Page, on the left under Quick Links, click on Property Tax. Search either by name, address or parcel number.
Click on the Green Parcel Detail Button for tax and assessment information. Assessment information is toward
the bottom of the page. A copy of the Property Record Card which will include a sketch of the improvements
as well as details regarding assessment, can be found at the top of the Parcel Details. Click on the Property
Record Card Button, second option from the top.


New this year; an Assessment Questionnaire will be included in the Form 11 mailings for parcels that
are part of the Cyclical Reassessment for the 2020 Assessment year. By completing this questionnaire, it will
assist our office in making our assessment records as accurate as possible. Please return the completed form
by 7/1/2019. YOUR PARTICIPATION AND TIMELY RESPONSE ARE GREATLY APPRECIATED!
