For Taxes and Services, A Question of Who Pays

INDIANAPOLIS (AP): When it comes down to taxes and government services, one of the most fundamental questions is, “Who pays?''
 
State lawmakers pondered that last week as they looked at the state's tax on business equipment. Purdue University economics professor Larry DeBoer pointed out that Indiana businesses have paid between 44 percent and 47 percent of the state's taxes between 2007 and 2012, while individuals have paid the rest.
 
The question will be at the center of an upcoming debate on tax reform at the Statehouse. One question will be whether the state's 7 percent sales tax is applied to professional services.
 
On the other side of the equation, adoptive families and advocates for victims of domestic violence have been fighting to get money they say is owed them by the state.
