Quick Budget Reactions: Municipal Income Tax

Greg R. Lawson Feb 06, 2017

Among the bright spots of the proposed FY 2018-2019 biennial budget, Gov. Kasich tackles one of the state’s most pernicious problems--Ohio’s municipal income tax.

As The Buckeye Institute has long stated, Ohio's municipal income tax is one of the most complex and administratively burdensome taxes in the entire nation. Simplifying this entrapping byzantine maze--including Gov. Kasich’s budget proposal that would move toward a singular centralized collection process for businesses through the state--is long overdue and represents sound public policy.

The Buckeye Institute heartily applauds Gov. Kasich for advancing this much-needed and important reform for Ohio.
