Since Munster got that referendum through, just wait until next April or May when you get your property tax bill. In the Lake Central School area the same thing happened.
Lake County Councilman Ted Bilski (D) proposes a Lake County income tax of 1.5 percent so they can lower the property tax. No smoke being blown there.
While the proposed local option income tax for Lake County would affect all working residents, it's young people who should be the most upset over this issue.
In recent weeks, I've been weaving around on U.S. 30, U.S. 421 and other highways. My driving would look suspicious to anyone who couldn't see I've been dodging potholes.
Is it time to move? Real estate tax going up again! A new county income tax of 1.5 percent is just around the corner! We already have one of the highest sales tax in the country at 7 percent. The only state higher is California.
I agree with both Dave Tedesco and James Bock (Letters, March 22.). A county income tax manipulated by the slimy, nefarious politicians of Lake County is simply robbery. No tax caps, no oversight, no ethics, no transparency, equal disaster for county residents.

This chart shows how Indiana's business climate compares on a variety of taxes.
The tax The Times continuously pushes is not a fair tax. Derived from the adjusted gross of the federal return, after all deductions and notorious tax breaks, it is placed on the backs of the working class, while the wealthy pay little or nothing. The Times is exempt.
Here we go again. Indiana is now crafting a bill to "entice" Lake County to enact a countywide income tax.
I agree 100 percent with Susan Zivich’s view on the Lake County income tax debate.
Many people believe President Barack Obama's policy of taxing the rich will solve our national debt. False. Taxing the rich to death will not even make a dent in the budget.
Like any sudden in-flow of cash, your tax refund presents an opportunity to spend your money wisely or foolishly.
