2015 Indiana: Local Tax Credit

Indiana allows a credit for local income taxes paid to another city, county or town, or local government entity outside of Indiana. 

Certain taxpayers, who paid a local income tax outside of the county they lived in, may have filed an incorrect Indiana tax return.

TurboTax has fixed this issue. 


How to tell if you may be impacted:

  • You filed your Indiana tax return prior to February 11, 2016 AND
  • Your spouse paid taxes in a county they didn’t live in AND
