Elected officials in Goshen are afraid of losing money to support police and fire if state leaders succeed in cutting business taxes.
The Goshen Common Council passed a statement of opposition to a proposal in the legislature to cut business personal property taxes, if it’s done without a plan to replace the lost revenue.
The resolution is borrowed from Aim Indiana, a local government association that’s opposed to the loss of income.
The Elkhart Truth reports the loss could be around $1 billion statewide, with towns, cities and counties impacted the most. Mayor Jeremy Stutsman says, in Goshen’s case, it could mean $3 million less a year.
