Ind. Courts - Whither the Indiana Tax Court?

On May 15, 2015, the Supreme Court created a 9-member Tax Court Task Force, with a reporting deadline of May 1, 2016.

On May 24, 2016, as detailed in this post, the ILB was able to post the report of the task force.

On June 27, 2016, the ILB posted a somewhat critical story from the Indiana Chamber Blog, headed "Tax Court Under Scrutiny."

Next, another committee. This July 7, 2016 ILB post is headed "Supreme Court creates a Tax Court Advisory Committee." The directive is:

... to work with, advise, assist, and assess progress by the Indiana Tax Court in implementing the reforms and improvements recommended by the Task Force, and to provide periodic written progress reports to this Court.
That is the most recent information the ILB has seen, there have been no public reports, etc.

However, two bills relating to the Indiana Tax Court have been introduced in the current session of the General Assembly.:

Background: On Sept. 14, 2014, the ILB had a lengthy post on the Tax Court backlog, headed "Ind. Courts - A look at the Indiana Tax Court." An update followed on Nov. 18, 2014.
