*** CLARIFICATION OF TERMS ON YOUR TAX STATEMENT ***
My tax statement states "improvement" but I didn’t do anything
to improve my property.
The term "Improvement," as it is used on the tax statements,
refers to any dwelling, building, manufactured structure, or
physical addition to the land. The term "Improvement" does
not indicate there have been recent changes to a property.
The Assessor's Office is responsible for assessing all properties in Marion County which includes commercial, industrial, rural and urban properties, manufactured structures and business personal property. It maintains records on approximately 130,000 property tax accounts. The department is also responsible for managing special programs such as veterans' exemptions, senior deferrals, special assessments and enterprise zone exemptions. Maps and information on property locations, descriptions and ownership are also maintained.
