Further elimination of the personal property tax without a dollar-for-dollar replacement would have serious consequences for all units of local government and Hoosier school systems.
In an effort to communicate these consequences with one clear voice, Aim invited the statewide organizations of all affected local units to join Replace Don’t Erase. Our hope is that by working together we can effectively communicate the seriousness of eliminating some or all personal property tax revenues without a state implemented replacement of these dollars.
The quality of our schools, public safety departments, infrastructure, programs and ability to develop livable communities depends on the limited resources currently available. Changes to these revenue streams need to be made with utmost deliberation and consideration for how the funds will otherwise be generated.
