Ind. Decisions - Tax Court decides one April 5th

In Washington Township Assessor, Allen County Assessor, and Allen County Property Tax Assessment Board of Appeals v. Verizion Data Services, Inc. (NFP), a 9-page opinion, Judge Wentworth writes:

This matter concerns whether the failure of the Washington Township Assessor, the Allen County Assessor, and the Allen County Property Tax Assessment Board of Appeals’ (collectively Assessor) to serve the summons and petition directly on Verizon Data Services, Inc. bars this appeal. The Court finds it does not. * * *

The Court held a hearing on Verizon’s Motion on May 5, 2011. * * *

This decision is consistent with the Court’s “long-standing policy that cases should be decided on the merits and justice should not be defeated by [procedural] technicalities.”
