Property Tax Deductions
Property tax deductions should be filed at the Auditor's office. We are located in the Courthouse Annex building at 111 American Legion Place, Suite 217 in Greenfield. If your forms were filed by title companies, mortgage companies, or real estate agents please contact our office to verify those forms have been filed timely. If you prefer to file the forms by mail all deduction forms are available at the Department of Local Government page of the State of Indiana website. You will need to include a self-addressed stamped envelope with your filing to request a receipt. If you have questions about what deductions you might be eligible for please check the Indiana tax benefits form listed below.
