Property may be granted an exemption if an Application for Property Tax Exemption (Form 136) (PDF) has been timely filed and it is proven that the property qualifies for an exemption specifically identified by statute. Generally, such statutes require ownership or occupancy of the property by a qualifying entity and use of the property for an exempt purpose as defined by laws which govern the decisions made by the Property Tax Assessment Board of Appeals (PTABOA).
Indiana Code 6-January 1, 2010-16 provides guidelines that aid in determining whether or not an entity is eligible for a tax exemption. Property that is owned, occupied, and used for charitable, educational, religious, literary, or scientific reasons may be eligible for a full or partial tax exemption.
