Understanding Indiana Property Taxes

Overview of Indiana Taxes

Indiana collects a total of $55,792,982,000 in revenue every year. Of that, $6,936,067,000 comes from property taxes, or 12.4% of total revenue. As a result, Indiana has the 28th highest property tax rate in the country, which is 14.7% less than the national average of 1.06%. Generally speaking, states where property taxes make up a higher percentage of total state revenue have higher property tax rates, and states where property taxes make up a smaller percentage of state revenue have lower property tax rates.

How does this translate to what homeowners actually pay? The average home value across Indiana is $150,199, meaning the average Indiana homeowner pays 0.91% of their home value every year in property taxes, or $9.08 for every $1,000 in home value.
