?Following the trail of the tax money in Washington County PDF Print E-mail
Wednesday, 09 July 2008 00:00
?    Do arguments over the purpose of taxation and the blatant inequities in tax law have credence–with out a doubt they do.  However, the complexity of the taxation laws at all levels of government as well as the convoluted appropriation process of those tax revenues can cause the average taxpayer attempting to understand the whole process to throw up his or her hands in frustration.
    The recent debacle brought on by the new property tax program here in Indiana is but one example of how efforts to respond to frustrated taxpayers has only exacerbated the problem by making the necessary process of collecting taxes to pay for vital services, and all the other good stuff mentioned in the Preamble of the United States Constitution, a nightmare for taxpayers, government officials and those whose responsibility it is to provide public services without timely revenues such as public schools, public health agencies, the court system, etc.
    In Washington County, not unlike the other 91 counties across the state there are elected officials whose responsibility it is to calculate, collect, spend, and account for tax dollars.  The rules by which this intricate game is played are wrapped up in codified requirements, restrictions, and regulations that are available online at the State of Indiana website, http://www.in.gov.  How those tax dollars are spent can be the contention of heated debate in both public and closed meetings of those elected officials.
