Indiana Budget Projections Will Fall Short For Most Of 2014

New projections show Indiana will have nearly $300 million less in tax revenue to spend over the next two years than lawmakers thought when they wrote the current two-year budget.

As a result, Indiana will bring in $182.6 million dollars less than expected in 2014 and $115.1 million less in 2015. That means that there will be budget cuts.

Senate Appropriations Committee Chairman, Republican Luke Kenley says that it means that the state probably can’t afford this year to start eliminating the property on business equipment or to cut individual income taxes for those who take the standard deduction and have children.

Those tax cuts are a big part of Governor Mike Pence’s 2014 legislative agenda.

Through the first five months of the current fiscal year, tax receipts missed the previous forecast by $114 million.

The good news is that Indiana has $2 billion in reserves.
