Assessor's Office

Welcome the Assessor's Office!

Sullivan County Courthouse

The Assessor serves a county or local government by determining the value of all taxable property in the jurisdiction.  

Taxable property typically includes land and buildings, referred to as real property, and the fixed assets owned by businesses, referred to as personal property. The property values determined by the Assessor are used to assess the property taxes owed by individual taxpayers. Accurate property value assessments help ensure fairness in the property tax system. The Assessor maintains records on the physical characteristics for all the real property in a jurisdiction, including building size, land area, location, and building type. In order to adjust property valuations, the Assessor tracks real estate market conditions and sales data.

The property record cards show the assessed value of each property based on Market Value in use. The State of Indiana sets the rules and regulations that all Indiana counties must follow in determining the estimates of market values in use for each property. That value in use then becomes the assessed value.

Pursuant to I.C. 6-1.1-4-4, the State of Indiana now requires that an annual visit of 25% of the county’s parcels be revisited by our field representative. This means that 100% of our county’s parcels will be re-evaluated every 4 years.

Real property is assessed on January 1st and paid in the Treasurer’s Office on May 10th and Nov.10th.
