Property Tax in Arrears - Help Lay the Foundation for Change
Explanation of payment of property tax in arrears is commonly listed
as one of the most difficult things in a real estate transaction. Join your fellow members from across the
state at IAR’s annual Legislative Conference to get the opportunity to meet
with your state legislators and lay the foundation for ending the payment of
property tax in arrears. Major changes are
difficult to accomplish during a single session, but with 28 new legislators
and a new governor, this is the perfect year to introduce a big idea. Our success requires active
advocacy by every REALTOR® member.
Registration is open through Tuesday, January 22nd here and you can book your overnight
accommodations at the Indianapolis Marriott Downtown online
or by calling 317-822-3500 and requesting the special IAR rate.
