Indiana voters approved property tax caps in the 2010 November election and local governments started working under an early version of them in 2009.
Those wishing to find out how that is working for taxpayers and local governments, including counties, schools and others, are encouraged to attend a Purdue Extension program Oct. 24.
Larry DeBoer, one of the top experts in local government finance in Indiana, will lead, "What Have We Learned About Property Tax Caps," a workshop set for Monday, Oct. 24, from 1:30-4 p.m., at the Clay County Extension Office.
Reservations are requested by noon, Friday, Oct. 21. Those interested in attending should call 448-9041 or e-mail email@example.com to assure there will be space and handout materials.
As always, the event is free and open to the public.
DeBoer will address many questions regarding the tax caps, including which taxpayers are receiving the bulk of the tax cap credits, what determines the level of tax cap losses for local government units, can officials anticipate what tax cap losses will be before the budget year, what's the relationship between the property tax caps and local income taxes and more.
The workshop is part of an "On Local Government" series conducted by Purdue Extension throughout the year.
Programs originate at the campus, but can be accessed via the Internet at some local Extension Offices, including the Clay County Extension Office, which is located on the Clay County Fairgrounds.
