Personal property tax form deadline is coming


COLUMBUS, Ind. – Bartholomew County Assessor Ginny Whipple reminds taxpayers that it is not too early to start thinking about filing your Personal Property Forms which are due this spring. Personal property is self-assessed and it is the responsibility of the taxpayer to obtain the appropriate forms and file a return with the correct assessing official in the county where the personal property is located. Whipple states the staff at the assessor’s office can submit the forms electronically while the taxpayer is in the office. It only takes a few minutes and saves taxpayers the time and effort of filling out the forms themselves.
Indiana taxes both real estate and personal property. Vehicles subject to excise tax are not considered personal property. If the total acquisition amount of personal property countywide is under $20,000, the owner is exempt from taxation. However, the taxpayer is still required to file a return each year. Forms not submitted or postmarked by the May 15 deadline are subject to
penalty. If you prefer to complete the forms yourself, you may pick them up at the assessor’s office, at 440 Third Street, Room 201, or obtain them online here. For more information, call 812-379-1505.
