House Speaker Brian Bosma Wednesday proposed what he calls the “smart way” to reduce Indiana’s business personal property tax.  But the plan wouldn’t completely eliminate the tax.

Governor Mike Pence made elimination of the business personal property tax the cornerstone of his 2014 legislative agenda.  He stopped short, however, of identifying a specific way to get rid of the levy on business equipment that brings in a billion dollars a year to local governments.
