LaGrange County Commissioners went on record as being opposed to the proposal in the legislature to repeal the personal property tax. The proposal is contained in S.B. 1 and H.B. 1001.
The complete repeal of personal property tax in LaGrange County would have an effect of lowering the tax levy by some 23.6 percent before adjustments. The adjustment would be that rates on real estate would be increased until tax caps would apply.
Commissioner Garry Heller moved to accept the resolution, which passed unanimously.
