Ohio Governor John Kasich has been very critical Donald Trump and many of his plans to help make America great. The Republican governor criticized Trump’s plan to reduce taxes, but is planning on working towards reducing state income tax for Ohio residents. However, Kasich plans to make up the difference by increasing sales tax.
COLUMBUS – Gov. John Kasich’s last big shot to shape Ohio’s future kicked off Monday, as the term-limited governor proposed a plan for state spending and taxes.
Some of Kasich’s proposals have increasingly put him at odds with his fellow Republicans who control the Legislature, but he backed off some of those ideas in this budget.
The two-year budget must pass before July 1, when it takes effect. Here’s what you need to know about Kasich’s priorities.
1. Lower some taxes, increase others
Kasich is continuing his quest to lower the state’s income tax and replace most of the lost tax revenue with an increase in the sales tax, along with an expansion of the places Ohioans must pay it.
