Worker, not to dispute your information but I just put a search in on a $100,000 home in South Bend and the taxes are right around $1,000 a year. Now that's still better than here but that would mean your home is around $33,000?
I know you said you just recently moved so is it possible the $300 figure is for a partial tax year?
I used to do a great deal of business in Indianapolis. Great development area in their downtown. See it if you get a chance.
