Tax Court affirms racquet club assessments

Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

The Indiana Tax Court affirmed 2002 property tax assessments of the Indianapolis Racquet Club Thursday.

Senior Judge Thomas G. Fisher ruled that the Indiana Board of Tax Review did not err when it found the club failed to establish a prima facie case that assessments on three parcels of property collectively valued at about $1.7 million were excessive or that they were not uniform and equal.

The club argued the board ignored unrebutted evidence that each parcel’s assessed value exceeded its market value-in-use as well as the club’s claim of what the proper assessed value of each parcel should be. The club argued its land should be valued at about $1.2 million, based in part on assessments of other tennis clubs which were not in the same township.

But Fisher wrote in Indianapolis Racquet Club, Inc. v. Marion County Assessor, 49T10-1201-TA-1, that the club neither provided an analysis of factors that made that land at those properties comparable to is own or adjusted for distinguishing characteristics that would affect land values.

“The final determination shows that the Indiana Board did not ignore the Racquet Club’s evidence. Instead, it shows that the Indiana Board weighed that evidence and concluded that it was not probative in demonstrating that the Racquet Club’s land was over-valued or that its land assessments were not uniform and equal with other properties,” Fisher wrote.

The matter was remanded to the board so it can instruct the Marion County assessor to correct the record card so that one parcel’s square footage and acreage are consistent.

  2. Unlike the federal judge who refused to protect me, the Virginia State Bar gave me a hearing. After the hearing, the Virginia State Bar refused to discipline me. VSB said that attacking me with the court ADA coordinator had, " all the grace and charm of a drive-by shooting." One does wonder why the VSB was able to have a hearing and come to that conclusion, but the federal judge in Indiana slammed the door of the courthouse in my face.

  3. I agree. My husband has almost the exact same situation. Age states and all.

  4. Thanks Jim. We surprised ourselves with the first album, so we did a second one. We are releasing it 6/30/17 at the HiFi. The reviews so far are amazing! www.itsjustcraig.com Skope Mag: It’s Just Craig offers a warm intimacy with the tender folk of “Dark Corners”. Rather lovely in execution, It’s Just Craig opts for a full, rich sound. Quite ornate instrumentally, the songs unfurl with such grace and style. Everything about the album feels real and fully lived. By far the highlight of the album are the soft smooth reassuring vocals whose highly articulate lyrics have a dreamy quality to them. Stories emerge out of these small snapshots of reflective moments.... A wide variety of styles are utilized, with folk anchoring it but allowing for chamber pop, soundtrack work, and found electronics filtering their way into the mix. Without a word, It’s Just Craig sets the tone of the album with the warble of “Intro”. From there things get truly started with the hush of “Go”. Building up into a great structure, “Go” has a kindness to it. Organs glisten in the distance on the fragile textures of “Alone” whose light melody adds to the song’s gorgeousness. A wonderful bloom of color defines the spaciousness of “Captain”. Infectious grooves take hold on the otherworldly origins of “Goodnight” with precise drum work giving the song a jazzy feeling. Hazy to its very core is the tragedy of “Leaving Now”. By far the highlight of the album comes with the closing impassioned “Thirty-Nine” where many layers of sound work together possessing a poetic quality.

  5. Andrew, if what you report is true, then it certainly is newsworthy. If what you report is false, then it certainly is newsworthy. Any journalists reading along??? And that same Coordinator blew me up real good as well, even destroying evidence to get the ordered wetwork done. There is a story here, if any have the moxie to go for it. Search ADA here for just some of my experiences with the court's junk yard dog. https://www.scribd.com/document/299040062/Brown-ind-Bar-memo-Pet-cert Yep, drive by shootings. The lawyers of the Old Dominion got that right. Career executions lacking any real semblance of due process. It is the ISC way ... under the bad shepard's leadership ... and a compliant, silent, boot-licking fifth estate.
