Tax Bite

A bit less to Columbus a lot more to Wilmington
For tax year 2015, the income tax rates have been reduced by 6.3% from the 2014 rates.

In 2014 a Wilmington household with a taxable income of $60,000 owed
$1,668 in state income tax. Thanks to Bob, Cliff and John the tax bill was reduced a whopping $105.00 for 2015.
In the meantime, also so thanks to our boys, the state has reduced tax revenue sharing with cities like Wilmington while squirreling away more than $2 billion hard cash in a reserve fund. The reduction in revenue sharing has left most cities, including Wilmington, without sufficient income to maintain their streets and provide essential services.
The cities have been forced to ask the voters to replace the lost revenue with local tax levies. In Wilmington's case the $60,000 household is being asked to increase the city earnings tax by ½ percent or $300 .
There is no free lunch. Streets will not be paved for free and city cab can't get free gasoline.

Thank You Mr. Speaker

For laying footsie with the for profit scoundrels
Even though there are no charters in your home county.

What’s your county’s charter tax?

Ohio’s for-profit charter school system costs taxpayers $1 billion annually, and it’s rife with waste, fraud and abuse. You are footing the bill, and local school districts are suffering.
