May 15, 2003
This May 2003 analysis, based on calculations by the Institute on Taxation & Economic Policy, shows the impact of a 1 percentage-point increase in the Ohio sales tax on different income groups. Such an increase would impose a much greater burden on low- and middle-income taxpayers, compared to their incomes, than it would on the affluent.
