OHIO SENATE PASSED HISTORIC BUDGET PROVIDING $3.1 BILLION IN TAX RELIEF!
In case you missed it our State Senator Sandra O'Brien and her senate colleagues passed the final version of the Senate’s $85.8 billion budget plan, adding $600 million of tax relief to the initial $2.5 billion rollout, helping both Ohio taxpayers and small businesses. Moving towards a fair and simplified flat tax approach, the Senate budget reduces the number of tax brackets to only two over the biennium. The marginal rates will be 2.75% over $26,050 and 3.5% over $92,150. Ohioans making $26,050 or less pay no income taxes. Taxpayers will also enjoy an extended sales tax holiday that will run for two weeks.
CONTINUING HIS MISSION TO GET INFORMATION OUT TO YOU, AUDITOR DAVID THOMAS DISCUSSES THE HOMESTEAD TAX CREDIT.
Homestead Tax Credit. This is the program Auditors can give to residents who are seniors, disabled, and also make below a certain income. This is a program which for the first time since 2007 is seeing an increase in credit, but due to values and more levies, has overall lost value to seniors. We must encourage more policies which will directly benefit those most at risk of being taxed out of their property!

FANTASTIC NEWS COMING FROM OUR CLERK OF COURTS APRIL DANIELS AND OUR ASHTABULA COUNTY SHERIFF BILL NIEMI!
Story from www.starbeacon.com
Clerk of Courts assists with purchase of new sheriff's cruisers
Left to right, Ashtabula County Sheriff’s Deputy Eric Hermsdorfer, Lt. Steve Murphy, Sheriff William Niemi and Clerk of Courts April Daniels stand next to one of the department’s new cruisers, made possible by Daniels’ assistance.
JEFFERSON — Ashtabula County Clerk of Courts April Daniels presented a check to Ashtabula County Sheriff William Niemi to help buy eight new Dodge Chargers for his department.
The Clerk of Courts in Ohio administers the Title Office in each county, and Ohio law allows the clerk to expend money for various projects, passing through the County Commissioners's Office.
Last July, the Ashtabula County Commissioners approved a $351,000 increase in the Sheriff’s Office budget in order to allow for the purchase of the vehicles.
“We’re very appreciative of the clerk of courts using some of the title funds that are paid by county residents to then be reinvested into our county,” County Commissioner Casey Kozlowski said. “This provides some relief to our county’s general fund.”
The money from these titles is made possible by the citizens of Ashtabula County who have titled cars, trucks and boats.
“About 40,000 title-related documents are annually processed by a staff of six hard-working employees in the Clerk of Courts Title Department,” Daniels said. “I feel it is appropriate that we assist our sheriff with his fiduciary responsibility to serve and protect these same citizens of Ashtabula County.”
The party is still buzzing from the recent announcement of the selection of President Trump's committeeman and committeewoman in Ohio’s 14th Congressional District delegates for 2024 our own ACRP Chairman/ GOP State Central candidate Charlie Frye and State Senator Sandra O’Brien.
