Ruling: No time limit on Ind. property tax errors

MUNSTER (AP) — An Indiana Tax Court judge has ruled that a 1989 state regulation imposing a three-year limit to correct errors on property taxes was repealed in 2000 and not replaced, clearing the way for state residents to ask county auditors to correct errors for the past 13 years.

The Times of Munster reports (http://bit.ly/1emnQvx ) Judge Martha Blood Wentworth said in her ruling Friday that any petition to correct a post-2000 error in property tax payments, credits or deductions must be considered timely filed. She acknowledged the ruling "has the potential to open the floodgates" of error appeals, but said she could reach no other conclusion.

She was ruling on the case of a Hamilton County tax appeal, where the county failed to apply a properly requested homestead credit from 2004-7.
