Counties, school districts, cities with a population over 500, and metro special taxing districts should use the following instructions to:
schedule and hold public truth in taxation hearings;
adopt and certify a proposed and final property tax levy; and
monitor compliance with the Truth-in-Taxation law.
County auditors and treasurers should use these instructions to prepare and mail parcel-specific notices of proposed property taxes.
The instructions have been reviewed and reorganized into a single document that contains information about the Truth-in-Taxation process and requirements for the parcel-specific notice. The calendar and checklist have been combined and are on Pages 2 and 3 of the instructions.
There is navigation built into the instructions so you can click on an item from the Contents on Page 1 to go to that topic. There are also clickable links, colored blue, in the document that will take you to the section of the instructions that deals with the topic.
The instructions include information about the one-time Property Tax Savings Report that must be included with the parcel-specific notice. The examples below include both versions of how the report may be shown. Either version can be used regardless of where the county is located.
