Gov. Mitch Daniels is set to sign the property tax legislation tomorrow.

Daniels got most of what he proposed last fall. Homeowners get a tax cut, future bills will be capped and the sales tax rises to compensate.

Are you happy with how it turned out?
  • no
  • The sales tax increase is a crock of s$*t.
  • This is a tax shift, maybe even a net tax increase, not a tax cut.
  • Property Tax Reform is not complete without local government consolidation and government spending cuts!

    The bipartisan government-reform panel led by Indiana Supreme Court Chief Justice Randall Shepard and former Gov. Joe Kernan recommend the elimination of 1,155 units of government and 5,833 fewer elected officials statewide saving $400 million each year.

    Message from former Governor Joe Kernan:

  • When are people going to understand that whether it's property, sales, or another tax, you will pay the same in the end. Save your energy, people!!
