Pike Co. tax hike goes into effect in 2016

PIKE CO., IN (WFIE) -

An extra $250,000 is coming into Pike County, thanks to a tax hike.

The county-council voted to raise the local income tax to .5%

The county is only getting about $1-million a year from that tax.

The funds were recently used to help pay for the sewer project to I-69.

The tax hike goes into effect next year.

County Auditor Ron Wilson says the rate is still the fourth lowest local income in the state.
