Did You Know?

Tim Just told me that Ohio didn’t have an income tax until the year 1971. It was to take the pressure off of real estate taxes. Tim found it on the History page of The Ohio Farm Bureau.

I told him I remembered that.  Governor Gilligan oversaw that and the induction of the State Lottery which he opposed. I believe both issues made him a one time governor.  

That tax really worked, didn’t it?
