Property Tax Seminar Offered at Two Locations

Topics concerning the State of Indiana's property tax structure and how to understand it, as well as discussion on how tax dollars are spent, building economic growth, government efficiency, and tax education for children and young adults will be part of two property tax seminars being offered by Operation TEN (Tax Education Now) on April 5. 
Three Operation TEN representatives, including noted economist and educator Morton Marcus of Indiana University, and Indiana University Northwest educators, Dan Lowery and Joe Gomeztagle of Indiana University Northwest will facilitate both seminars. The first presentation will be at IVY Tech State College, 1440 E. 35th Ave in Gary, from 8 to 11:30 a.m. Following the seminar at Ivy Tech, a second presentation is scheduled at the Lake County Public Library, U.S. 30 in Merrillville, from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m.

Operation TEN is the result of Gomeztagle's long, but successful fight to prove that Indiana's property tax system is unconstitutional. After winning a lawsuit with the Indiana Supreme Court challenging the constitutionality of the assessment system, Gomeztagle gained support of Marcus, director of the Indiana Business and Research Center at IU's School of Business, and Operation TEN was formed.

Sponsored by The Times newspapers, and co-sponsored by IU Northwest, Ivy Tech, and the Gary Chamber of Commerce, the property tax seminars are open to the community free of charge. For more information contact Gomeztagle at the IU Northwest School of Business and Economics at 219-980-6910.
