Indiana County is in the midst of a three year tax reassessment, which is set to wrap up in 2016. There have been plenty of questions surrounding reassessment, with many residents wondering if their taxes will go up.
The county commissioners have announced that they’ll address reassessment at a public meeting on August 20th at 7 p.m. in the PNC Room of the Kovalchick Convention and Athletic Complex. Meanwhile, the county is in the process of hiring around 50 employees to assist the company recent hired to conduct the reassessment.
Those employees will undergo two weeks of training at the Careerlink offices in White Township. The county commissioners have said that, in the past, counties that have reassessed have seen 1/3 of property taxes go up, 1/3 of taxes remain the same and 1/3 of taxes decrease.
