Operation TEN (Tax Education Now) Workshop 

Residents interested in having a clearer understanding of the property tax system and how it works are invited to a workshop on February 27 at 6 p.m. at St. Mark's Church on Ridge Road in Gary.

Sponsored by the Glen Park CDC (Community Development Corporation) and the Indiana University Northwest Glen Park Task Force, the program will be presented by Morton Marcus of Indiana University and Joe Gomeztagle of Indiana University Northwest. Both Marcus and Gomeztagle are key members of Operation TEN (Tax Education Now), a statewide group of economic educators who help Hoosiers gain a clearer understanding of the property tax structure and how tax dollars are spent

Operation TEN was formed after Gomeztagle won a suit against the State of Indiana after challenging the current property tax assessment system as unconstitutional. 

For more information on the Operation TEN property tax workshop, telephone CDC director Barbara Triplett, at 219-884-5790, or IU Northwest Glen Park Task Force co-chair Rick Hug at 219-980-6838.
