Indiana House sends governor bill clarifying wind tax breaks  

Credit:  By Dan Carden, www.nwitimes.com 8 April 2011 ~~

The Indiana House agreed 89-0 on Friday that utilities and other wind-power generating companies do not qualify for a property value adjustment.

State Rep. Don Lehe, R-Brookston, said Senate Bill 481 clarifies that the 100 percent deduction of a property value increase due to a windmill is only for property or mobile home owners, not power companies.

Earlier this year, state tax officials rejected a deduction application filed by a wind-power company seeking to remove $59.3 million in assessed value from tax rolls.

Lehe said the measure, which now goes to the governor, makes the intent of the statute clear.
