Elkhart County Some Elkhart County communities will lose some major cash this year, due to tax caps.

According to our reporting partners at the Elkhart Truth, all in all, that means cities, towns, school districts and other entities will be short more than $42 million. That's up by more than $6 million from last year.

The numbers come from the Indiana Department of Local Government Finance.

Laws that went into effect in 2009 sought to help owners by implementing special property tax caps.

Communities have been doing their best to anticipate the lost revenue each year, and trying to make the appropriate cuts.
