Tax Court sets arguments next month

January 1, 2007
The Indiana Tax Court will hear arguments next month on a suit challenging the constitutionality of the state's property tax assessment system.

Arguments are set for 1:30 p.m. Oct. 25 in Mel Goldstein, et al. v. Indiana Department of Local Government Finance, et al., 49T10-0709-TA-00045. Indianapolis attorney John Price filed the suit earlier this month on behalf of 11 residents from around the state and seven citizens' organizations pushing for tax reform. The suit includes 14 counts relating directly to Marion County and the recently passed income-tax increase and property-tax refunds, while the others focus on tax-rate equality and assessment practices statewide.

Tax Court Judge Thomas G. Fisher issued an order Friday setting the argument date, as well as a Nov. 8 hearing to decide on a class certification request.
