Property Tax


Ice Miller has a long history of providing counsel in real estate and business personal property taxation issues.

In 1961 our attorneys drafted the statutory foundation for Indiana’s property tax laws. Today we assist our clients in Indiana, Ohio and Illinois in obtaining property tax abatements, seeking reassessments for real estate, handling valuation issues, coordinating compliance and reporting, and helping structure activities to qualify for exemptions, credits and deductions. Our attorneys are dedicated to establishing timely tax solutions that enhance our clients’ economic returns by reducing their tax expenses. Our tax attorneys and other tax professionals are extremely sensitive to the competitive advantages and disadvantages that can occur from inequitable tax assessments.
