Department of Local Government Finance

DLGF > Overview > Tax Control Board Tax Control Board

On June 30, 2009, the Indiana General Assembly enacted House Enrolled Act (HEA) 1001(ss)-2009, which, at Section 467 repeals both IC 6-1.1-18.5-11 and IC 6-1.1-19-4.1 effective July 1, 2009. Further, throughout the act, the duties of the Control Boards are removed effective July 1, 2009.

As such, all matters previously scheduled to appear before the Control Boards will now come directly to the Department of Local Government Finance. The commissioner is the approval authority for all projects.

Indiana’s two Property Tax Control Boards were designed to allow expert review of construction projects and financial requests as part of the state's on-going effort to ensure fiscal responsibility. The School Property Tax Control Board and the Local Government Property Tax Control Board were comprised of experts in their fields of practice such as business, engineering, architecture and education.

Each board reviewed construction plans and met with local officials who sought approval for construction projects. After thorough review, the board made a recommendation to the commissioner of the department to approve, disapprove or modify the project.
