Ind. Decisions - Tax Court decides one today

In William W. Thorsness v. Porter County Assessor, a 10-page opinion, Judge Wentworth writes:

William W. Thorsness appeals from the final determination of the Indiana Board of Tax Review regarding his 2007 real property assessment. The Court affirms the Indiana Board’s final determination. * * *

Thorsness’s evidence indicated that there were six residential properties in Dune Acres that apparently were assessed, and therefore taxed, at a lower percentage of market value than his property. While this evidence is no doubt relevant, the Indiana Board did not err in determining that it was not probative in demonstrating that Thorsness’s property was assessed and taxed at a level that exceeded the common level within Westchester Township overall. Accordingly, the Court will not reverse the Indiana Board’s final determination on this basis.
