Indiana Homeowners need to update homestead deduction
Everyone that currently has a homestead credit must file a homestead verification form at least once prior to January 1,2013 to continue receiving the benefit on their property tax bill. This applies even if you currently have a homestead credit on file. These "pink forms" were mailed with your 2010,2011, and 2012 bills. It is worth verifying that the form has been filed and accurately accounted for by the County Auditor.
