Governor Holcomb calls for special session to return money to taxpayers

Indiana Governor Eric Holcomb signed a proclamation on Wednesday calling for a special session to discuss his plan to return more than $1 billion of state reserves to taxpayers.

The General Assembly session is set for July 6.

Holcomb hopes to give each Hoosier taxpayers an additional $225.

“This is the fastest, fairest and most efficient way to return taxpayers' hard-earned money during a time of economic strain,” said Gov. Holcomb. “Indiana’s economy is growing and with more than $1 billion of revenue over current projections, Hoosier taxpayers deserve to have their money responsibly returned. I’m happy to be able to take this first step and look forward to signing this plan into law as soon as possible.”

Taxpayers are currently getting $125 from the state’s automatic taxpayer refund.
