Take Action NOW to reduce corporate income tax

Is your company organized as a C-corporation? If the answer is "yes" then you need to contact your state legislators today!

Senate Bill 589 would reduce the Indiana corporate income tax rate from 8.5 percent to 6.5 percent. This would have a very positive effect on many local businesses and ultimately the economic health of our community. The success of this important proposal could hinge on whether your legislators know and believe that this move is of strong interest and importance to your business.

Only 10 states have a higher corporate income tax rate than Indiana. This proposal would improve Indiana’s economic development prospects and help thousands of small- and medium-sized companies and their employees. It’s all about job creation and economic growth.

Take action today and reach out to your state legislators and let them know you support SB 589. Contact your legislators through Indiana Prosperity Project’s easy-to-use, online letter writing tool.

Thank you,
Michael Landram
President and CEO, Greater Fort Wayne Chamber of Commerce
