Henry County Homeowners to See Property Taxes Fall
July 23, 2008 - Homeowners in Henry County will soon see the first effects of the governor's property tax relief plan when tax bills are mailed later this week. On average, homeowners in Henry County will see a 38-percent cut in their 2008 property tax bills, according to information released by the State Office of Management and Budget.
“The Governor promised lower property taxes, and this is step one of fulfilling that commitment,” said Ryan Kitchell, state director of the Office of Management and Budget and a member of the governor’s cabinet. “The plan is off to a great start.”
The reduced bills are the result of historic legislation Gov. Daniels led earlier this year in the 2008 General Assembly. That legislation created permanent property tax relief throughout the state, starting with $620 million in additional homestead credits to be applied this year. That money is used to lower homeowners' share of local government and school expenses and, therefore, reduce their property tax bills.
“The relief homeowners will see on their property tax bills is proof that the landmark property tax legislation has had a positive impact on Hoosier homeowners,” Sen. Beverly Gard (R-Greenfield) said. “During this difficult time in the economy this may encourage others to locate to Henry County and our new law may result in Indiana having among the lowest 10 property tax rates in the country.”
