We are contemplating moving to Dyer from the Western burbs. Is there a tax for us working in Illinois but living in Indiana?
I've heard car registration is expensive? I can't imagine anything, anywhere being more expensive than IL? Since my husband shares custody with his ex-wife, does that mean they could go to an Indiana college with in state tuition if they graduate from an Illinois high school?

Thank you

You will have to pay income tax in Illinois and Indiana, but you should be allowed to deduct your Illinois liability from your Indiana income taxes.

I was checking on the taxes too since I'm considering a move to Indiana from Illinois. My paycheck will still be coming from Illinois. I guess you have to fill out a non-resident tax form for Illinois when you do your taxes and you'll get a credit from Indiana if you paid too much in state income tax. If you Google excise tax for Indiana there's a list of how much you'll pay for the tax on your car. It's based on how much your car is worth.

Picking up and moving residence should be fully researched before moving. There can always be unexpected surprises that no one will bother to inform you about. You have a lot of questions and paying vehicle license renewal is small potatoes in the scheme of things. I would suggest you make a visit to a reputable tax preparer or CPA and ask these questions.

Also, just because you work in a state doesn't mean your kids would get in-state tuition (I know that from experience). Many states of residence CAP what you can deduct when you work out-of-state. You also need to inquire if the city/county you are interested in moving to charges an additional income tax.

Good Luck with your search.

Your child should be able to receive in-state tuition at Indiana universities if one of their parents resides in Indiana, even if the other parent does not. The state in which they go to high school does not affect residency. Here's what the Indiana University website has to say on the topic of residency:

I'm not sure why Porter Co. gets overlooked for things like this. It is still part of "the region". In fact, I live in Valparaiso, right off of 49, and it takes about 15-20 minutes to get to the Dune Park Southshore station. The train ride is a little over an hour long. Valparaiso also has a bus that goes directly from Valparaiso to Chicago on the weekdays (ChicaGO Dash).
