Bell says no to ending state tax; city's loss would be $18M

Mayor Mike Bell yesterday condemned an idea to eliminate the state income tax, which he said would cost the city up to $18 million a year.

The mayor urged the Ohio General Assembly to reject the bill, but his efforts are apparently unneeded.

The measure, which was introduced by Rep. John Adams (R., Sidney), would eliminate the personal income tax over 10 years. It has been considered dead after being introduced by a Republican in the Democrat-controlled House.

The bill is expected to stay in a legislative committee and not make it to a floor vote.

The city of Toledo began 2010 with a $48 million deficit that was balanced after implementing a combination of cuts, revenue enhancements, and employee concessions.
