HAMILTON COUNTY COMMISSIONERS CUT TAX PROPOSAL IN HALF
Published January 10, 1996
Hamilton County, OH, commissioners have cut in half a proposal to raise the sales tax in an attempt to make it more "palatable" for voters, according to the CINCINNATI ENQUIRER. A one-cent on the dollar tax increase was proposed in June to help finance new stadiums for the Bengals and Reds, and help with infrastructure improvements in Cincinnati. Now, voters will be consider a half-cent on the dollar tax increase on the March ballot which will contribute $35M a year toward stadium construction and $15M toward property tax relief for homeowners. A second half-cent initiative -- additional property tax relief and for prison improvements -- will be voted on during a November ballot (Michaud & Goldberg, CINCINNATI ENQUIRER, 1/5).
