Solving the tax debate

Gov. Mitch Daniels has proposed capping residential property taxes at 1 percent of a homeâ??s assessed value, rental properties at 2 percent and businesses at 3 percent.

Now state Sen. Luke Kenley says the bipartisan commission on taxes he heads will offer a similar proposal. Kenley, a Republican from Noblesville, says the proposal will recommend cutting homeowner taxes even deeper than the one-third offered in the Daniels plan.

Are you happy with the direction Daniels and Kenley are headed?
  • Norm -
    Are any of the proposals immediate?
  • Neither the Governor's nor Kenley's are immediate. Orentlicher's proposal is the only immediate one, and the one that makes most sense to me. He did a presentation for our neighborhood association comparing all the proposed plans out there.

    I'm not good at talking the details; check out his website.
