State Representative Jack Jordan (R-Bremen) recently received an appointment to serve as a member of the State and Local Tax Review Task Force, which will take a deep dive into ways Indiana can continue to responsibly cut taxes for Hoosiers and businesses.

To prepare for the next legislative session, which kicks off in January, state legislators serve on interim committees throughout the summer and fall to examine policy issues, gather public input, and recommend potential legislation.

“Indiana continues to remain fiscally responsible and maintain a balanced budget that does tremendous things for Hoosiers,” Jordan said. “This summer, we will be looking at short- and long-term goals for our state as well as a slew of different taxes, so we can make sure we are doing right by Hoosier taxpayers.”

Jordan said the task force will look at the state’s near-term and long-term financial outlook and overall fiscal position. It will also review how to reduce or eliminate the individual income tax, and property and business personal property taxes.

Members of the public are welcome to attend and testify at committee hearings, which typically occur at the Statehouse in Indianapolis. Hearings are also live-streamed and archived online at, where committee calendars and meeting agendas are posted.
