Taxpayers to lose Homestead credit, not deduction

April 15, 2011

COLUMBIA CITY — Auditors offices around the area are being inundated with phone calls lately because of taxpayer confusion surrounding the word “Homestead.”
“We had 94 calls in two days,” said Whitley County Auditor Jen McGuire.
She said that number is low because it’s just the number of callers who talked to one employee in her office.
“He kept track,” she said.
The confusion — the elimination of a three-year homestead credit on Indiana tax bills.
According to McGuire, taxpayers are confusing this with the Homestead Deduction, which is a discount afforded to local taxpayers when they pay their property taxes.
