DLGF provides county tax bill estimator tool online
INDIANAPOLIS (November 10, 2008) – The Department of Local Government Finance (DLGF), in partnership with the Indiana Business Research Center (IBRC) at Indiana University, today released an online property tax calculator for Lake County taxpayers. This tool allows taxpayers to enter their property’s assessed value, taxing district and possible deductions to see tax bill estimates for bills due in 2008. Taxpayers can access the tool from the Department’s Web site at www.in.gov/dlgf/4932.htm.
“The estimates provided by this tool are projections that taxpayers can use to determine how recent legislation will affect them,” Commissioner Cheryl Musgrave said.
The release was in conjunction with the approval of Lake County’s 2008 budget and certification of tax rates on November 7, 2008.
The estimates provided by this tool are projections only and should not be taken as a statement of true tax liability, which is determined by the county.
A copy of the Lake County budget and the DLGF analysis will also be available online at www.in.gov/dlgf/2578.htm.
