Indiana Corn Farmers Applaud Signing of Farmland Property Tax Reform Bill

INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (April 8, 2016) – Mike Nichols, a farmer from Spencer County, and president of the Indiana Corn Growers Association, issued this statement following Governor Pence’s signing ceremony for SEA 308, reforming farmland property taxes in the state:
 
“We thank Governor Pence and the members of the General Assembly for enacting this critical legislation for Indiana farmers. Due to a broken formula, our property taxes continue to rise while our net income has fallen dramatically. This is not a special break or a handout, it is bringing the formula more in line with the economic conditions facing Indiana farmers. Farmers thank the Governor and legislators for this critical law.”
