  12. For those who would pay, Issue 23 could cost more than $400 a yearRead the original story w/Photo

    Oct 21, 2014 | This Week Community News

    Most Upper Arlington residents would see no increase in their local income tax should the city's proposed Issue 23 pass at the polls Nov. 4. City officials say 55 percent of UA taxpayers already pay a 2.5-percent local income tax where they work -- in Columbus, Worthington or other local cities with an existing 2.5 percent local tax -- and would see no increase at all if Issue 23 passes, and UA's local income tax rate increases from 2 percent to 2.5 percent. Of the 45 percent who would be affected, the proposed 25-percent increase to the UA income tax would raise the median Upper Arlington taxpayers' annual costs by more than $400.
