So I’ve started doing my Federal taxes and I had a bit of a sticker shock, at least when comparing it to my previous year’s Federal taxes.
One of the two issues on the ballot across Montgomery County, Ohio this election cycle is the Five Rivers Metroparks Levy. Despite using - and enjoying - the Metroparks, I intend to vote No on this ballot initiative. It is the intent of this post to explain my reasoning.
The City of Dayton is asking is residents and workers for another 0.25% of their income this November. Currently the rate is 2.25% - one of the highest in Ohio - so, if the tax is passed, the rate would climb to 2.5%.
