Innovation Ohio released a report yesterday showing the local tax impact of John Kasich’s $1.8 billion in cuts to Ohio schools:
Since May 2011, Ohio voters have considered an unprecedented $1.1 billion in new property and income taxes for schools. Voters passed just over 40% of that amount, approving school levies equal to $487 million in new taxes.
This doesn’t even come close to covering all of the tax hikes for local and county services that resulted from Kasich’s budget cuts to locals.
Keep this in mind when the Governor’s team tells you they cut your taxes.
