Porter County Assessor Jon Snyder announced Tuesday that his office has
completed the 2012 general reassessment, marking the end of a 16-month
process of on-site property inspection, review and evaluation of more than
80,000 real property parcels.
“The process has been long and challenging, but we’ve reached the end,”
Snyder said. “I am thankful for all of the help and support we’ve received.”
Every five years, the assessor is required by state law to visit every
property in the county to ensure the county’s records are accurate and
complete. The reassessment officially began on July 1, 2010, and must
conclude no later than March 1, 2012.
The data gathered during reassessment is critical to minimizing the risk of
delayed property bills for the upcoming year.
“On-time tax billing is a win for local government and for taxpayers,”
Snyder said. “It is my top priority.”
Snyder thanked Portage Township Assessor Millie Arocho for her teamwork and
cooperation in completing the task, as well as to the County Council and
County Commissioners for their support.
“I appreciate the help of all of my fellow elected officials in getting this
job done,” Snyder said. “Collaboration is key in any monumental task, and we
were blessed to have such cooperation.”
Snyder also thanked his staff, whom he credits with doing all of the
“They went out of their way to make sure that this job was done completely
and on time, and I appreciate their dedication to this project.”
