Tax sale surplus fund. Requires a county auditor to include a statement advising a delinquent taxpayer that the taxpayer may have a refund due after the sale of the taxpayer's property at a tax sale in the notice provided to the taxpayer prior to the application for judgment and order of sale of the property. Requires a delinquent taxpayer, before transferring property previously sold at a tax sale, to sign a form that discloses the amount of money in the tax sale surplus fund that the taxpayer will forego by transferring the property. Provides that the person who purchases the property from the delinquent taxpayer may not receive the amount of money in the tax sale surplus fund unless the person is named on the disclosure form. Increases the portion of the minimum bid required on a property at a tax sale attributable to postage from $25 to $35. Provides that if a taxpayer does not make a request for a property tax refund or credit within 90 days after the decision of the county property tax assessment board of appeals, the state board of tax commissioners, or the Indiana tax court that entitles the taxpayer to the refund or credit because an assessment was decreased, the taxpayer is entitled to interest only until the date that is 90 days after the decision.
