Porter County Auditor Bob Wichlinski is right to act on the property tax abatement for Porter Regional Hospital, applying the tax break to the first full assessment of the new hospital's cost.
Cedar Lake resident Rachelle Ruge-Bernard said a government notice stated her 11-year-old 1,700-square-foot, three-bedroom, two-bathroom house is now assessed to be worth nothing -- that's zero dollars -- for purposes of calculating her next property tax bill.
A recent column stated the assessment of 22 cents per $100 of assessed valuation would cost a taxpayer with a $100,000 home $68.15 more in taxes. (I don’t have the exact amount but think it’s close). If I do the math right, the cost should be $220 (($100,000 / 100) x .22).
PORTAGE TOWNSHIP | Portage Township property owners should receive their annual notice of assessments in the mail this week.
