Property Tax Forum on Sunday @ Meridian Street United Methodist Church

On Sunday, Meridian Street Methodist located in Meridian Kessler, ground zero of the property tax revolt, will host Sen. Teresa Lubbers and Representative David Orentlicter for a property tax forum.

It was just reported a few minutes ago by Advance Indiana that David Orentlichter did not vote today on the Governor's property tax cap. Gary Welsh and his readers via comments speculate as to why.

David O. will seek the democratic nomination in the May primary to run for Congress. Senator Lubbers has two fierce challengers for her seat.
Thanks to our community church, Meridian Street United Methodist for putting on the this forum. They are a good neighbor to our community.

Indiana Governor Mitch Daniels says Marion County’s Township Assessors made a $4 billion mistake which helped result in higher property taxes for homeowners. Daniels said today that the initial reassessment of Marion County’s commerical and industrial property was off by $4 billion. Commercial property was under assessed by $3.8 billion and industrial property was underassessed by more than $206 million.

Because of the reassessment, the Governor argued that residential property owners should see a drop in their tax bills. Daniels also used the opportunity to reiterate his call for the elimination of township assessors.

Becky Williams, the head of the state township assessors association declined to comment, saying she wanted to take a closer look at the Governor’s figures and would respond accordingly.
