COLUMBUS—State Sen. Bob Peterson (R-Washington Court House) and State Rep. Marlene Anielski recently participated in a forum alongside leaders from the Ohio Municipal League to discuss Ohio tax policies and other issues affecting local governments.

“The tax burden facing hard-working Ohioans persists as an obstacle in the pursuit of financial stability,” said Peterson. “I remain committed to productive discussion surrounding the pressing issue of tax policy so that this stability can be more easily attained.”

“It’s important that we, as members of the House and Senate continue to meet with the representatives of our local municipalities, especially during the budget season,” said Representative Anielski. “Hearing their concerns allows us to craft a better, more responsive budget for the state of Ohio that works well on every level of governance.”

Peterson and members of the Ohio Municipal League examined tax policy changes to result from House Bill 49, which creates a centralized municipal tax filing point for Ohio businesses and would reduce the current number of tax brackets.
