Lake County tax case dismissed for lack of subject matter jurisdiction – Olivia Covington – Indiana Lawyer.com

A northern Indiana trial court must dismiss a case it originally transferred to the Indiana Tax Court, the Indiana Court of Appeals ruled Monday after finding insufficient evidence to prove the tax court’s jurisdiction.

As part of the bill that will be heard in the Indiana House Ways and Means Committee next week, townships could appeal to the state for a two-cent increase in their property tax rate funding “township assistance.”
