Reducing the tax burden for Hoosier families and veterans is always a top priority for the Indiana General Assembly, according to District 48 State Senator Mark Messmer of Jasper.
This year, legislators passed Senate Enrolled Act 309 to help lessen income taxes for families and Senate Enrolled Act 304 to reduce property taxes for veterans.

District 48 State Senator Mark Messmer of Jasper says family can make all the difference in a child’s future, especially when circumstances have made the child’s parents unable to be caregivers. As such, Messmer says it’s important that state laws value the contributions of these families.


Meanwhile Senate Enrolled Act 304 provides several property tax benefits for veterans such as increasing the assessed value limit for certain veterans who qualify for a property tax deduction.

Senator Messmer says raising the limit for disabled veterans will allow an estimated 3,300 additional Hoosier veterans to receive this benefit, saving them a total of about $1 million. He points out that the law also allows the deduction to keep up with rising home values.


Senator Messmer says the two laws will provide benefits to veterans as well as those caring for Hoosier children, providing much deserved tax relief.
