Here is Indiana's current property tax cut plan:
Reduce the increase in tax deductible property taxes and shift the entire tax burden to non-deductible sales taxes.
Increase the local income tax
Reduce no government spending
Result: NET TAX INCREASE
We've got to quit governing like this!
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.

I am not a politician.
Does this political fronting mean: If I vote for him, I believe that I am not paying more taxes?
Does It also mean that I will pay a 1% increase in my homes' market value,regularly? I will also pay more in County income taxes?
Where's the decrease in taxes?
As my parents are retired from the school system, does it mean that they will eventually STILL have to give up their diginity,sell their home and move into those welfare apartments?

This is bogus. How can a rebate of 100.00 justify an increase in sales taxes by 1%. Don't people realize that what they purchase on a daily basis can exceed what they pay in property taxes. I know every time a do the grocery shopping I want to have a cardiac arrest. Start adding what you pay and realize that property lowering property taxes don't really help the situation. They will suck it out of you somehow bit by bit so you think you are getting a better deal.. Wake up everyone.

Yup we are getting hoodwinked again. Apparently
contituents aren't capable of running a calculator.
Read the small print....avoid a sales tax increase.

Are the lawmakers and the powers that be only concerned with re-election and not the business of cutting taxes?
They don't appear to be aware that we have enough math skills to figure that taxes will still rise in a couple of years.
