Tax Conference Report Released

Oct 9, 2014 – TaxTalk Blog

“How do we make Indiana taxes simpler for taxpayers?”

This question was the core of the Indiana Tax Competitiveness and Simplification Conference, hosted by the department in June. The conference brought together national and state tax experts and policymakers to examine Indiana’s tax system and identify ways it could be simplified.

On September 29, the department took its next step forward in simplifying the Indiana tax code by releasing a report of recommendations made at the conference. DOR Commissioner Mike Alley also presented an overview of these recommendations to the Indiana Commission on business personal property and business taxation.

The report is available at www.in.gov/dor/5119.htm. It provides a compendium of ideas and recommendations generated by tax experts, business leaders, state legislators and public comments during the tax conference. The recommendations suggest ways Indiana can simplify its taxes and make the state more competitive for businesses to create new jobs.

The department wants your feedback, too! It welcomes Hoosiers to review the report and make comments, suggestions or additional recommendations. Those interested can submit comments at www.in.gov/dor/5120.htm, and they will be posted at www.in.gov/dor/5121.htm.

Those who prefer to send suggestions in a letter can mail it to:
