Sen. Nugent offering to mail you state tax forms
State Sen. Johnny Nugent (R-Lawrenceburg) will assist Hoosiers by mailing state income tax forms to residents unable to obtain the documents online, at public libraries or offices of tax preparers and the Indiana Department of Revenue (IDOR), he announced Friday.
Officials at IDOR last week announced tax booklets would no longer be mailed as a cost-saving measure.
Nugent said nearly two-thirds of Indiana residents no longer make use of the hardcopy forms and instead file their taxes electronically. The move to eliminate the mass mailing of forms will save taxpayers an estimated $200,000 each year.
"This measure will certainly help to reduce waste, as many Indiana residents have access to computers or to the nearest public library," Nugent said. "However, there are still some who do not have the means to print state tax forms themselves. Those who cannot may contact my office and I will mail them the forms."
Nugent said constituents can request the forms by calling toll-free at 800-382-9467 or writing his office at Sen. Johnny Nugent, Indiana State Senate, 200 W. Washington St., Indianapolis, IN 46204-2786.
Nugent is in his ninth term as a state senator for District 43, which includes Bigger, Campbell, Center, Columbia, Geneva, Sand Creek and Vernon townships in Jennings County. The district also encompasses Dearborn, Ohio, Ripley and Union counties, as well as a portion of Franklin County.
