Ensure the wealthiest Ohioans are paying their fair share
One of many potential improvements would be to reinstate the 2005 rate on income over a quarter million dollars and create a new rate on income over a half million dollars. Hundreds of millions of dollars a year – enough to reverse much of the cuts to local government, invest in human services, and boost school funding – could be generated this way. More than 95% of Ohioans would pay the same as they do now. Whatever the rates, the richest Ohioans should pay their fair share to fund vital services we all need.
