DeKALB COUNTY, Ind. (WFFT) - The DeKalb County Council is holding off on an income tax increase for the moment.
FOX 55 has been reporting how the county is asking the towns to give back a portion of the increase tax to help for a community corrections center.
However, legislation sitting on Governor Eric Holcomb's desk could change how that works.
If he signs the bill into law, counties wouldn't need to share income tax for jails.
DeKalb County council president Alan Middleton tells FOX 55 that would apply to the community corrections project.
He said once the bill is signed, the county will then cancel their previous ordinance on the tax with a new lower rate.
