County officials: Indiana Beach owes $347,000
A northern Indiana county says it is owed about $347,000 in combined property and innkeeper's taxes by an amusement park.
White County's tourism authority and treasurer told the Journal & Courier the Indiana Beach Amusement Resort on Lake Shafer neglected to pay an estimated $180,000 in innkeeper's taxes and about $167,000 in 2011 property taxes.
White County leaders say they are taking action to collect the money.
Morgan RV recently paid the county $11,000 in innkeeper's taxes. County Commissioner John Heimlich said he is confident Indiana Beach will settle its debt.
