Assessor's Office


The Dearborn County Assessor’s Office is notifying Real Property and Tangible Business Personal owners directly affected by flooding that in accordance with IC 6-1.1-4-11 and IC 6-1.1-4-11.5, form 137R or 137PF needs filed with the county assessor’s office to begin the process of reassessment of any damages or loss to residential, commercial and/or personal property.



Filing Deadline for the Petition:

•          The petition for reassessment of destroyed property, the reassessment order, and the tax adjustment order may not be made after December 31 of the year in which the taxes that would first be affected by the reassessment are payable.


Reassessing Damaged Property:

•          Physical inspection of property is required.

•          Evidence such as photos, videos, repair bills, insurance claims, news articles, and appraisals should be reviewed.

•          Documentation from local, state, and federal agencies may be helpful.

•          The final step is to determine the new assessed value of the property and notify the taxpayer of the change on the notice that is attached to the 137R petition.

•          If the taxpayer disagrees he can appeal pursuant to IC 6-1.1-15.

•          If the county assessor contracts with a vendor to perform reassessments, the contract must be submitted to the DLGF for review, as with any contract for assessment functions.



Cyclical Review and New Construction site visit are ongoing.  We actively have representatives in the field reviewing property.
