(Current law requires the fiscal body to approve a sale of real property if the appraised value is $50,000 or more.) Allows the fiscal body of a political subdivision to adopt an ordinance (in the case of a county or municipality) or a resolution (in the case of other political subdivisions) to increase the maximum assessed value of real property for which the political subdivision may negotiate a sale of the real property to an abutting landowner instead of having the property appraised and sold by public bidding. (Current law allows a political subdivision to negotiate with the abutting property owner if the assessed value of the real property is less than $15,000.)

SB386PROPERTY TAXATION. (NIEMEYER R) Makes procedural changes and technical corrections to various property tax provisions in the Indiana Code that relate to property tax assessments, reviews, appeals, and refunds. Provides for the exchange of information before a hearing to be held by a county property tax assessment board of appeals (PTABOA). Provides that property tax appeals must be filed not later than the following: (1) For assessments before January 1, 2019, the earlier of: (A) 45 days after the date on which the notice of assessment is mailed by the county; or (B) 45 days after the date on which the tax statement is mailed by the county treasurer, regardless of whether the assessing official changes the taxpayer's assessment. (2) For assessments after December 31, 2018, the earlier of: (A) June 15 of the assessment year, if the notice of assessment is mailed by the county before May 1 of the assessment year; or (B) June 15 of the year in which the tax statement is mailed by the county treasurer, if the notice of assessment is mailed by the county on or after May 1 of the assessment year. Provides that the last day for the county assessor to certify to the county auditor the assessed value of personal property is July 1 (rather than June 15, under current law). Provides that the last day for the county assessor to provide assessed values of real property to the county auditor is July 1 (rather than June 1, under current law). Requires the DLGF to prepare and make available to taxpayers a power of attorney form that allows the owner of property that is the subject of an appeal to appoint a relative for specific assessment years to represent the owner concerning the appeal before the PTABOA and the DLGF (but not the Indiana board of tax review). Provides that such a relative that is appointed by the owner of the property is not required to be certified as a tax representative in order to represent the owner concerning the appeal. Permits, instead of requires, the county assessor to impose a penalty against a taxpayer that fails to attend a scheduled hearing by the PTABOA. Allows a church that meets certain conditions and that missed the applicable deadline to claim a property tax exemption for the 2011 assessment date to file an application to claim the exemption. Allows a taxpayer that: (1) meets certain conditions; and (2) would have been eligible for certain property tax exemptions if the exemption applications had been properly and timely filed; to retroactively claim the property tax exemptions.

SB404ABORTION, CHILD ABUSE, AND HUMAN TRAFFICKING. (HOUCHIN E) Defines "parent or legal guardian or custodian". Prohibits the state or an agency of the state from consenting to the abortion of a pregnant minor unless the life or health of the pregnant minor is endangered. Specifies that before performing an abortion on an unemancipated pregnant minor, a physician must first obtain from a parent, legal guardian, or custodian accompanying the unemancipated pregnant minor seeking an abortion: (1) written consent; (2) proof of identification; and (3) evidence of the relationship between the parent, legal guardian, or custodian and the unemancipated minor. Adds a parental notification requirement subject to judicial waiver for an abortion performed on an unemancipated pregnant minor. Specifies who may bring an action against a person who aids or assists a pregnant minor in obtaining an unlawful abortion, and who may be named as a defendant. Prohibits a person from aiding or assisting an unemancipated pregnant minor in obtaining an abortion under certain circumstances, and authorizes the award of civil damages for a violation. Requires a physician who receives written consent for an unemancipated pregnant minor to have an abortion to execute an affidavit for inclusion in the unemancipated pregnant minor's medical record. Makes it a Level 6 felony for a person to falsely claim to be the parent or legal guardian or custodian of a pregnant minor with intent to circumvent parental notification requirements. Authorizes certain persons to seek an injunction for certain acts that would aid or assist an unemancipated pregnant woman in obtaining an abortion without parental consent. Specifies reporting requirements and the consequences of failing to comply with reporting requirements. Permits suspension of a physician's license under certain circumstances. Provides that a health care practitioner is subject to disciplinary sanctions for failure to report suspected: (1) child abuse in accordance with the mandatory reporting requirements; or (2) human trafficking, if there is evidence that a patient is the victim of human trafficking and a practitioner with a similar background would believe that the patient is a victim of human trafficking. Permits the medical licensing board to revoke a physician's license if the physician: (1) fails to transmit a form regarding an abortion performed on a female who is less than 16 years of age; and (2) performs an abortion with the intent to avoid the requirements of state law. Instructs the state department of health (state department) to adopt additional rules relating to abortion clinics. Requires a pregnancy termination report with respect to an abortion performed on a patient who is at least 16 years of age to be transmitted to the state department within 30 days after the date of the abortion rather than on the semiannual basis required under current law.

Provides that if a political subdivision: (1) imposes a penalty under any such authorized ordinance, rule, or regulation; and (2) the prohibited request for law enforcement is made by a tenant in a rental unit; the penalty imposed must be assessed against the tenant and not against the landlord or owner of the rental unit. Provides that any such penalty may not exceed $250. Provides that a housing authority retains the ability to enforce rights and remedies established by contract or federal law. Provides that a city, county, or town attorney retains the ability to bring a nuisance action against a landlord or the owner of a rental unit in certain instances.

Provides that a county or municipality may not require the owner of privately owned real property to agree to: (1) any requirement that would have the effect of controlling rental or purchase price; or (2) the payment of a fee, in lieu of a requirement that would have the effect of controlling rental or purchase price, as a prerequisite to consideration or approval of: (A) certain permits; or (B) any primary, secondary, or revised plats. Provides that a county or municipality retains the right to: (1) manage and control the development of a commercial or residential property in which the county or municipality has an ownership interest; and (2) enact, enforce, or maintain any general land use or zoning regulation that does not have the effect of: (A) controlling rental or purchase price; or (B) requiring real property to be reserved for sale or lease to certain owners.
