Tax Returns Each Year
As the leaders of Storen Financial, Greg and Kim Storen are proud of the company’s modest beginnings and its family ties. In 1966, after years in the financial services industry, Pat Storen, Greg’s father, founded Storen Financial in the family’s home. He would visit his clients’ homes to complete their tax returns at their kitchen table.
By 1985, the success of Pat’s business allowed him to move into his first office on Main Street in Brownsburg. When he was fresh out of college, Greg went into banking and that’s where he met his wife, Kim. After spending 15 years in the industry, Greg established his own financial planning and corporate tax business in Zionsville.
Pat retired in 2009 and sold the company to Greg and Kim. They merged the two businesses and it continues to expand. In the early days, the team prepared 125 tax returns per year. That has grown to over 5,000 returns, along with $125 million in assets under management. Today, Storen Financial employs over 20 full-time staff members, which increases to 32 during tax season.

How are Indiana State and Local taxes calculated?
For new residents of Indiana, there is a learning curve on understanding State & Local taxes. Indiana has a flat rate for the State of 3.23%. So if you have $10,000 or $1,000,000 of taxable income, you are taxed at the same rate. In addition to this, each individual pays a county tax and each County can set their own tax rate. County rates range from .35% for Jefferson to 3.38% for Pulaski. There are a few exceptions to the rule, but an Indiana taxpayer is subject to County taxes based on where they lived on January 1st of the tax year. Click here to see more FAQs.
How much retirement income is taxed in Indiana?
Like a lot of other States, Indiana does not tax Social Security Benefits. Also, Indiana gives a full or partial deduction for pensions that originate from Railroad Retirement Board, Office of Personnel Management and Defense Finance and Accounting Service (Military Retirement). If one is not lucky enough to be receiving retirement from one of the listed entities, then your retirement income will be fully taxable to State and County. To keep from owing to Indiana on your Tax Return, please ask the Administrator if they will withhold State taxes on the benefits. If they do, then as a rule of thumb, we tell clients that 5% withholding will cover most taxpayers in the state. This covers both State and County rates. If someone knows that they live in a county with a rate greater than 1.7%, then take the percentage up to have withheld 6% or 7%. If the Administrator will not withhold State taxes, then Quarterly Estimates may need to be sent in. Like the Federal, Indiana can charge an Underpayment Penalty if more than $1,000 is owed at the end of the year.Click here to see more FAQs.
