Personal Property Department
Self Reporting State
Unlike real estate assessments, personal property is a self-assessment system in Indiana. The taxpayer is responsible for reporting all tangible personal property that is used in their trade or business, used for the production of income, or held as an investment that should be or is subject to depreciation for federal income tax purposes.
The assessment date for personal property is January 1st of each year and filings are due May 15th of each year per IC.
Amended returns are allowed within twelve months from the date of the original return. Only timely filed original returns can be amended per IC.
ATTENTION TAXPAYER - Recent changes in Indiana law now require taxpayers who file a Business Tangible Personal Property return, to complete the entirety of the form. The following items are regularly absent from filed returns:
