Marion County Auditor's Office


Homestead Verification Letters: The Auditor’s Office recently sent out homestead verification letters to residential owners who have failed to verify their homestead deductions. If you received such a letter, it means you have previously received the homestead deduction, but have failed to verify it by sending in the last five (5) digits of your social security number and your driver’s license number as required by Indiana law. To reactivate your homestead deduction, please mail in or bring in the bottom portion of the letter to the Auditor's Office as soon as possible. Thank you!

Tax Sale and Redemption:  If you have questions about a tax sale property, including obtaining a redemption amount, please contact the following Tax Sale Specialists directly:

​​Charlene Calhoun: (317) 327-2071​​​ 

Dawn Ketchem: (317) 327-4651
