Phone 531-0234 the other Side of Madeira tax Story mall percent of residents actually pay earnings tax Pei lol by Maureen Lehman Madeira mayor Forest Atkins and other City officials believe the newly enacted City earnings tax raised from one half to one recent is the subject of a of of misinformation much of it coming from the accountability in Madeira group. Several City officials and employees met Friday in a news conference with suburban life to present some facts and figures about the tax. Present were mayor Atkins Council clerked Hillman tax commissioner Jane Pitrman and administrative Secretary Sharon Kneidl. Pirman said that Many City residents May not realize that presently Only 16 percent of All City residents pay the Madeira earnings tax 84 percent pay no earnings tax to Madeira. Some other City residents will be subject to the new tax who Are not presently Blue Ash when it goes from half to one percent in Jan. 1979, but probably not a Large number of people since Only a few other area cities have earnings taxes of less than one percent. A study Pirman made shows that of the 30 municipalities in Hamilton county which have earnings taxes 23 have rates higher than half percent anywhere from 3a to two reent six have rates of a a if percen t and one has a rate of less than half �percent., a one percent earnings tax appears to be about average for area cities. Mayor Atkins who is also chairman of councils finance committee has made a financial study of 10 area cities of com parable populations to Madeira which finds that Madeira residents pay less than average for City services. The average payment according to the study is $3 million less $167,85 per person and $533.11 per household. Madeira residents Are currently paying before a the tax increase becomes effective $126.88 per person and $422.04 per household the study says. These statistics were arrived at by taking current total budgets of the cities and dividing by the number of households and by the number of people. The most current 1975 population figures available were used. Another study Atkins made shows that Madeira is Well below its legally allowable indebtedness of $2.8 million. Madeira s indebtedness to fund three capital improvements Proferis and other Curren i indebtedness is Only about f i461,Oro, about 15 percent of the allowable. This represents Only about 5.6 percent of the projected budget for 1979, the study currently the half percent earnings tax provides about 13 percent of Madeira s total budget. It will provide about 23 percent of the budget for 1979, Sharon Kneidl estimates. It is estimated that the tax increase will bring in about another $170,000, and that the entire one percent tax will bring in about $350,000 including what is presently earned from the half percent tax. The estimated 1979 budget does not currently reflect the income from the increased tax since it was prepared before the tax increase was passed last month Kneidl said. The current projected budget is roughly $1.3 million. If you add another $170,000 to this figure you can see Bow the tax increase will bring this figure to about $1.47 million.
