Times Reports Reassessment Underway in Calumet Township

From the Northwest Indiana Times:

The Calumet Township Assessor’s Office is in the process of conducting the Cyclical Property Tax Reassessment as mandated by state law. The reassessment began July 1 for the 2015-pay-2016 property taxes, and will be ongoing for the next four years. During the reassessment, county and township assessors physically inspect each property to ensure that records are correct. The purpose of these inspections is to ensure accurate information for every property record. This week, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., assessing officials will be working in the Miller/Aetna neighborhood from Colorado Street east to Clay Street and from Dunes Highway south to 15th Avenue. Calumet Township assessing officials will re-assess approximately 25 percent of the parcels in its jurisdiction each year over the next four years. To ensure the safety of assessing officials, residents are asked to restrain all dangerous pets while the  officials are on the premises.
