West Carrollton may seek permanent income tax hike


West Carrollton is discussing asking voters next year to make permanent a 0.25 percent income tax hike.

West Carrollton has lost more than $1 million in funding the past five years due to state action and is projecting future general fund deficits, according to the city.

The West Carrollton City Council last year considered a ballot issue, but opted against it. Discussions about asking voters for the change have resurfaced in recent weeks, City Manager Brad Townsend said.

The income tax increase to 2.25 percent was approved three years ago and is set to expire in 2018. But with the city projecting future deficits, Townsend said the city may put an issue on the ballot next year asking voters to make it permanent.
