FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT) — Fort Wayne City Council members worked with city economic development to create a tax phase-in and deferral policy that won't cost taxpayers any additional money.
The city worked with students at Indiana Tech to get data to improve tax abatement policies.
Councilman Russ Jehl and Councilman Glynn Hines are calling for doubling application fees for businesses that want tax abatements from the city.
This would implement rates businesses were charged nearly two decades ago.
