Indiana Lawmakers Introduce Bills to Provide Tax Relief for Tollpayers

WDRB reports that southern Indiana lawmakers have introduced bills “to help provide some relief from paying [Ohio River Bridges] tolls.” Senate Bill 378 would create a business income tax credit of up to $1,000 for qualified businesses that have a RiverLink account and spend an annual minimum amount on tolls, and SB 379 would provide a personal income tax deduction of up to $500 for qualified persons who have a specified minimum amount of unreimbursed annual toll expenses.

Editor’s Note: SB 357, introduced on January 10 by Senator Joseph Zakas (R-Indianapolis) would create a personal income tax credit for “individuals who pay tolls to drive on the Indiana toll road for a nonbusiness purpose.” The credit’s maximum amount would be the lesser of $300 or the annual amount of tolls paid.
