Property tax distribution comparison

Property tax distribution comparison

I did some research on how Clark County compares to other counties in Indiana with a similar number of parcels. First thing I noticed is that our assessor’s office budget is already running very lean. Out of the 7 counties I compared, Clark’s assessment budget is in the bottom half.

How does Clark compare with the distributions of property tax dollars? Instead of the county essential services getting a higher portion – our municipalities get triple plus they get their TIF (tax increment financing) shares. The county budget gets 25% of what the municipalities get, even though the county provides the essential services such as: voter registration, auditor, recorder, assessor, courts, and jail!
