Here’s an update for all our Lake County friends, family and neighbors, copied from our friends at Professional’s Title Services:

 

Some really good news this morning…

The Lake County Auditor’s website for filing Property Tax Exemptions is now up and running.  There’s even a short video tutorial, for those uncomfortable online. 

To submit the form online, taxpayers must have the following before they access the application:
A valid driver's license or state ID
A credit card (There is a $5.50 convenience fee charged for online filing.  Well worth not having to suffer the hassles of the LCGC.)
A valid email address
Acrobat Reader 4.05 or higher  (Acrobat Reader is available for free from the Adobe website)

Please follow this link:
https://www.lakecountyin.org/portal/media-type/html/group/auditor/page/file-exemptions

It’s quite simple, but if people feel better about it, they can also print out the forms and mail them in.  If taxpayers provide an email address when they file, the Auditor will let them know when their exemptions are approved or denied (and, if so, why).

Please call PTS if you have any questions or problems.
