Indiana auditor's turn for tax error

Niki Kelly, Journal Gazette

– The state auditor’s office sent erroneous excise tax distributions to Indiana counties last week, a clerical mistake that is being corrected, officials said Thursday.

Excise taxes are collected by the state when Hoosiers register their vehicles. Then the state auditor distributes a portion of the money monthly to counties depending on where the people live. Counties then send it along to local units of government.

Erin Sheridan, spokeswoman for State Auditor Tim Berry, said about $19.7 million is dispersed every month.
