CROWN POINT, Ind. (AP): Indiana's collections of local income taxes in Lake County begin this month. Many county leaders argued for years the tax was unfair because business income isn't taxed while businesses will reap millions of dollars in property tax relief. Local income taxes have been on the state's books since 1973 as a supplement to property taxes.
