Can anyone tell me if there is a state tax taken from your paycheck in Indiana? Also, what is the sales tax on groceries, etc? What is the cost to register your car? Thanks to anyone and everyone!

Property Taxes
Property taxes in Indiana are administered at the local level with oversight by the Indiana Department of Local Government Finance.They are imposed on both real and personal property. Property, which is assessed at 100% of its true value, is subject to taxation by a variety of taxing units (schools, counties, townships, cities and towns, libraries, etc.) making the total tax rate the sum of the tax rates imposed by all of the taxing units in which the property is located. Homeowners are eligible for a credit against the property taxes that they pay on their homestead. The amount of credit to which the individual is entitled equals 10% of the individual's property tax liability, which is attributable to the homestead during the calendar year. A taxpayer entitled to receive a homestead credit is also entitled to a standard deduction from the assessed value of the homestead. The deduction is the lesser of one-half of the assessed value of the real property or $35,000. Homeowners 65 and older who earn $25,000 or less are eligible to receive a tax reduction on property with an assessed value of $144,000 or less and the individual received no other property tax deductions except for mortgage, standard, and fertilizer storage deductions. A surviving spouse is entitled to the deduction if they are at least 60 years old. The amount of the deduction is the lesser of one-half of the assessed value of the real property or $12,480. Call 317-232-3777 for details.

A circuit breaker program became law in 2006. It is aimed at helping residents by ensuring they don't pay more than 2% of their property value in taxes. The goal is to provide predictability in tax bills and equity among Hoosier taxpayers. It will become mandatory statewide for residential property in 2007. Homeowners will not see the potential impact until their 2008 tax bill. The circuit breaker expands to include all property types in 2009. Taxpayers will not see the impact of the expansion until their 2010 tax bill.

Inheritance and Estate Taxes
The inheritance tax (Class A) ranges from 1% to 10% based on fair market value of property transferred at death. The estate tax is the amount by which federal credit exceeds inheritance taxes paid to all states. Click for details.

For further information, visit the Indiana Department of Revenue site or the Department of Local Government Finance.

*Includes local county taxes

There is talk and voting going on in several governmental areas to increase or start a county income tax. So that is in a state of confusion right now.

The property tax in several counties is in a state of total mass confusion. First they sent 2007 bills, lots of yelling, then they said ok pay 2006 and we will see, lots of lenders paid both, can we get refund, maybe.........

Reassessments are being done in 3 counties maybe more. Who knows.
