Jurisdiction of the tax court over fees

The Senate Committee on Tax and Fiscal Policy heard SB 582 authored by Sen. Charbonneau on removing the jurisdiction of the Tax Court over municipal fees. The bill was introduced in response to a Tax Court ruling on December 5, 2018, that a storm sewer fee imposed by the town of McCordsville was a tax.

Representatives from the Indiana Association of Cities & Towns and Farm Bureau testified in favor of the bill. No one testified against. The bill was amended by voice vote to make the effective date retroactive to November 2018.  The amended bill passed 11-0.
