Kasucks wants to drop the sales tax from 5.5% to 5.0%, but include more services, including legal and accounting. Watch WCMH, I don't have time to mess with posting links.

The sales tax return isn't very difficult to do, so no biggie. I hate extra paperwork, though.

But it'll make your prices higher, and you won't be able to compete with lawyers in Kentuck or Pennsyltucky, or all the other balderdash that the government haters spew.

I guess you've never heard of Amazon before and how it is cannibalizing brick and mortar competitors? People will flock to a gas station to save 10 cents a gallon. Why wouldn't they go somewhere where they can save 7%?

If you were using services in KY, in a court in OH, would the tax be remitted to OH or KY?

Sterling, glad to see your support of our "moderate" governor.

If you did things the right way, you would charge tax for the time worked in Ohio.

Uh, I don't. He's running the same conservative game, lowering income taxes to help the rich, and expanding the sales tax to nip the poor. I'm hoping for a big scandal so the people will dump his butt next year.

See, I'm not a price fanatic like y'all are. I prefer QUALITY over price. Not that I don't look for a bargain now and then, but it's not my north star. I have better things to do than surfing the web for hours to save $1.25. Or driving all over town for the same thing.

Texas has no state income tax, California has the highest in the country.

I seem to recall that one of them is doing much better.

"Hope" is all the left has here in Ohio at the state level. Your potential candidates are a joke, your only policy is raising taxes to reward your financial backers, the public sector unions.

But what are the SALES taxes? See, you guys just pick and choose only what fits your ideology.

Texas- State base rate 6.25, Max local 8.25

California- State base rate 7.5, Max local 10

Illinois- State base rate 6.25, Max local (Chicago) 11.5 (highest in the nation)

Ohio-state base 5.5, as far as I know, all counties add at least something on, minimum probably 6, maximum in Cuyahoga 7.75

California beats Texas only in property taxes, but the D supermajority is talking of weakening Prop 13's limits.
