Property Tax Division and Deductions - Auditor PDF Print E-mail

Welcome to the Property Tax Division of the Allen County Auditor's Office.  One of the primary responsibilities of the Property Tax Division is to ensure taxpayers are receiving all of the Property Tax deductions for which they are eligible and then factoring this information into the calculation of property taxes.

 

Allen County Homestead Audit

Our office is currently in the process of auditing all properties receiving the homestead deduction.   We are mailing questionnaires (sample below) to selected properties to gather more information.   If you receive a questionnaire, please answer the questions and return the completed questionnaire to the address listed on top of the questionnaire or you may email it to homestead@tma1.com  If you have questions please contact the Homestead Audit Call Center at (888) 640-5506 between 9am and 5pm Monday through Friday. You can also email your questions to homestead@tma1.com
