Assessor

The Jasper County Assessor's office is located in the County Courthouse in Rensselaer, Indiana.

The Office of the Jasper County Assessor (Dawn Hoffman) is responsible for accurately and uniformly determining the market-value-in-use of every property in the county while serving the public with integrity in a helpful, professional and knowledgeable manner. This is achieved by using three approaches to value: Cost, Income, and Sales Comparison. The State now requires annual adjustments of assessments to reflect changes in the market. We encourage you to contact us with any questions or concerns regarding your assessment.

Cyclical Reassessment - June 30, 2014

The Jasper County Assessor’s office will be visiting all parcels in the county as required by Indiana Code 6-1.1-4.  We will inspect each parcel in the county over the next four years, starting July 1, 2014.

Field workers will be reviewing our information and taking measurements of buildings.  As you know, structures may change over time from wear and tear, or remodeling. 

This review does not mean your property assessment will increase.  Our statutory duty is to arrive at an estimate of market value for each parcel.  Each year, we use sales of similar properties to arrive at those estimates.  The field reviews may lead to increases, decreases, or as in most cases, very little change in property value.  The field reviews are designed to increase the accuracy of the assessment information.

Our field workers will carry identification and be able to answer general questions about your property.  Please assist them in answering questions they may have about numbers of bedrooms, bathrooms, etc.  We strive to make sure our information is as accurate as possible.
