Local coffer expecting $1.1 million
INDIANAPOLIS - Gov. Mitch Daniels said in a news release June 20 the state will advance $620 million of 2008 homestead credits to Indiana counties, in most cases months ahead of schedule.
Perry County Auditor Connie Berger said Tuesday the notification represented a reversal of what she was told previously, that the money would be provided after counties sent out tax bills. According to an April 29 memo from state officials, she explained, Perry County's share of the money will be $1,130,346.
