Lake Tax Vote Delayed

Share this post

A vote on a one-and-a-half percent local income tax didn't happen Friday after the Lake County Council said they failed to provide the proper advance notice. The vote was originally expected for May, then was moved up when a bill popped up downstate that would have directed the county how to spend the tax revenues, then late last week legislators decided not to go that route. The county council is still scheduled to meet May 14 for their regular meeting. Meanwhile, a bill lifting the Lake County property tax levy freeze heads to the Governor's desk. The county's been living with the freeze since 2007 for failing to pass a local income tax. Lake is the only Indiana county without one.
