Lawmakers Investigating How To Fund Income Tax Cut Without Sales Tax Expansion

Mar 19, 2013

Ohio lawmakers appear to be at an impasse on Governor John Kasich's proposal to cut the state income tax and broaden the sales tax to cover dozens of services.

The package would be a net tax cut of 1.4 billion dollars over 3 years. Two major business groups and majority Republicans in the Ohio House still don't like the sales tax part. Legislative leaders are asking business advocates for alternative ways to pay for the income tax cut. Statehouse correspondent Bill Cohen reports.
