After getting the facts of the case, I'm sorry to say, that the good Rev. really didn't have a case to stand on after all. It all comes down to a person isn't really retired if he is still working no matter how many jobs he or she may have retired from in the past. But common sense should have told him that no matter how confused he was with what he read on the city's tax instructions.

Then get the facts...the true facts....and NOT the aversion to the fact as presented by Gausch and Gallegher.... They entirely skirted the resl issue and did not address the main point of the entire case.......Stay tuned...its not over yet.

Conneaut city needs money.....Finance director Williams recently revealed the amount of back taxes owed and thousands and tousand of dollars owed to the city for MANY years.........They should be putting some of this "energy" into collecting those instead of JUST singling out someone who has made strides in the community for its entire betterment. Kind of smelly and reeks of retaliation or "who do you think you are" in "interfering" in the good old boy regime. Shame on you city officials and others who cant see the forest for the trees here. WAKE UP!!!!!

Seriously, if someone has earned income he/she must file an income tax return. It doesn't matter whether they are retired or not. The point is that the Rev. did not file an income tax return for 2 years during which he had earned income and was working. Any money from his retirement is not taxable, but his current earned income is.

I have to pay city income tax there on income I earned, so should he. If he was earning money where taxes are being deducted...then he owes city taxes too.

There are too many welfare cases in Conneaut who don't pay city income taxes and plain deadbeats who just WON'T pay city taxes as it is.

Its no wonder most of us vote NO on every levy that comes up. We are getting tired of supporting the entire city while others don't pay anything!
