The Indiana Department of Revenue (DOR) administers over 65 different tax types, annually processing over $20 billion in tax revenue. Once processed, funds collected on behalf of the state are made available for use by the 92 state agencies subject to oversight by the State Budget Agency. Taxes collected on behalf of local units of government are distributed to those units for such diverse activities as public safety, economic development, education and many others.
Did you know your tax dollars are used to help veterans, support K-12 education and encourage clean water and air, to name a few? The graphic to the right shows where taxes that are collected by DOR are used to serve the State of Indiana.
