Another Taxpayer Refund For Hoosiers


Another Taxpayer Refund For Hoosiers

Hoosiers across our community and great state continue to feel the sting of record-high gas prices and inflation. To help, state lawmakers plan to soon return to the Statehouse for a special session to provide relief for taxpayers.

House and Senate lawmakers are again voicing support to use state reserves to return $1 billion to Hoosier taxpayers via an automatic taxpayer refund after higher-than-expected revenue collections. Under the recently announced plan, each taxpayer would receive about $225, in addition to the $125 automatic taxpayer refund Hoosiers are currently receiving. Click here for more information on the potential refund.

This year, legislators passed a historic $1 billon tax-cut package to reduce income taxes and Hoosiers’ utility bills. The state also returned $545 million to Hoosiers in automatic taxpayer refunds, and paid down $545 million in teacher pension debt.

I look forward to joining my colleagues back at the Statehouse soon to provide some inflation relief and will continue to work on ways to get more money back into Hoosiers’ pockets.


  1. It does not help those that are living on a fixed income. Those who are living on Social Security benefits, including SSDI recipients. Disabled veterans living on a fixed income. The majority do not meet the income level requirements for filing taxes, so why should they be excluded from this money as well? The increasing fuel and utility prices decreases the availability of funds for purchasing food, meds, and any other necessities that may occur.
    It’s as if those who have already paid their taxes and are no longer “actively” participating, are of no concern for Indiana politicians.

  2. Unless your on social security then you get screwed. Doesn’t matter that you paid taxes for this surplus. So f the governor
