By the Indiana State statute, tax abatements can be granted for between one to 10 years. Only in year one is the total amount of new assessed value exempt from paying property tax. In each succeeding year, the share of the previously exempted assessed value that is taxable increases. In most cases, the granting of a tax abatement will reduce the amount of property taxes paid by the owner by approximately 50 percent over the full abatement period.
Tax abatements in each instance are allowable only within the city's corporate limits in areas designated as Economic Revitalization Areas established in accordance with the Indiana State statute. Applications are reviewed primarily on new job creation or job retention, economic impact, location and investment amount, though other economic factors are considered. A tax abatement application, including a Statement of Benefits form, must be submitted prior to filing for building permits or the purchase of new equipment. Please contact our office prior to filling out the application to discuss your eligibility and qualification.
If the tax abatement application meets all statutory requirements and suitably meets the local criteria, staff will prepare a preliminary resolution recommending approval by the City Council. A final or confirmatory hearing is usually held within 30 days of the preliminary or declaratory resolution.

Crime Stoppers will never reveal the identity of persons placing calls through the tip line. Unless one divulges their identity, the coordinator or members of the board of directors will only know them as the four digit numbers that Crime Stoppers is provided. You can find out more at http://crimetips.org/sitemenu.aspx?ID=655&.
Crime Stoppers has established its own separate telephone line that is maintained away from the police department. Calls that come into the Crime Stoppers line can be accessed by the coordinator but not traced.
Each caller is encouraged to provide a four digit number of their choice that will identify them with specific calls. We recommend that callers use the first four digits of their social security number since it is easier for callers to remember. These numbers reveal very little if any about one’s personal identity.
Callers may choose to identify themselves, but it is not necessary. You may find out more at http://crimetips.org/sitemenu.aspx?ID=655&.
Callers need to dial 317-262-TIPS to report their anonymous tip. If the coordinator is in his/her office when the call comes in, the call will then be answered personally. If the coordinator is not in, then the caller will receive a recorded message of instructions on what to do, and how to leave their tip.
Callers should call back within a short period of time to check up on their tip. If a tip leads to an arrest or the solving of a criminal case, then the tipster will be given instructions on how to go about getting their cash reward. Tipsters may receive up to $1,000 in reward money.
Each tip is evaluated and then assigned a number based upon a point system. The point system dictates how much a caller will receive in reward money. Tipsters are guaranteed a minimum payment of $100.
Remember, in order to get credit for a tip, the call must come through the Crime Stoppers tip line. You may find out more at http://crimetips.org/sitemenu.aspx?ID=655&.

The city's community development department received both federal entitlement and state competitive "pots" of dollars for this program. The NSP federal program is funded by the department of Housing and Urban Development, (HUD). The competitive "pot" is funded by the state. The goals of both programs include stimulating the local economic economy through construction job creation and creating safe, livable, and viable neighborhoods through the removal of blight, infilling with new affordable housing, and upgrading basic housing stock.
CDBG's national goal is the development of viable urban communities by providing decent housing and a suitable living environment, and expanding economic opportunities principally for persons of low and moderate income.
Under Title I, Housing and Community Development Act of 1974, as amended, all activities funded with CDBG funds must show sufficient public benefit.
