Indiana allows a refundable credit on Schedule 5 or Schedule F for real estate taxes paid on primary residence if the homestead is in Lake County and Modified Indiana Adjusted Gross Income (for Lake County Credit purposes) does not exceed $18,600.

The amounts which include both Code 1 (Principal residence) and State Use code 1 (Payment qualifies for Lake County property tax credit) in the Real estate statement dialog in the Tax Expenses section of federal Screen A are used to determine qualifying payments for the Lake County property tax credit. Use the force field on Screen INCr to change the amount of qualifying payments.

If claiming the Lake County property tax credit, the taxpayer may not claim the Homeowner’s residential property tax deduction.

In order to claim the Lake County property tax credit, Modified Indiana Adjusted Gross Income (for Lake County Credit purposes) must not exceed $18,600. The Indiana Lake County Credit Worksheet is calculated per guidance from the Indiana Department of Revenue. If data entry includes payments of real estate taxes, any deduction for property taxes is excluded on the worksheet when determining Modified Indiana AGI.
