Tea time: Hoosiers protest taxes the Boston way

New Media Producer: Rachel Beavin

It wasn't exactly the Boston tea party, but the message was pretty much the same.  

Some Indiana homeowners held a tea party protest Sunday, in response to high property taxes. They put their property tax bills in a bag shaped like a tea bag and tossed it into a lake.

Property taxes have been a hot topic in the Hoosier state, taxes on homeowners are expected to rise 24 percent on average this year, although many taxpayers face bills that have spiked far higher.
