Starke County’s local option income tax rates are not going up. The county council Monday set the rates for the County Adjusted Gross Income Tax (CAGIT) and County Economic Development Income Tax (CEDIT) Funds and the Starke County Jail CEDIT.
The CAGIT rate is .5 percent. The CEDIT rate is .56 percent, and the jail CEDIT is .65 percent, for a total local option income tax of 1.71 percent. That rate is effective Oct. 1, 2014 through Sept. 30, 2015 and is the same rate the county is currently collecting.
