WCS Asking for Earned Instead of Traditional Tax

Wilmington City School District has placed a new levy on the November 7, 2023 ballot. The previous levy that had been in place for 20 years was a 1% “Traditional Income Tax” (taxed all Ohio Adjusted Gross Income) and it expired at the end of 2022.

The proposed new levy placed before voters in November will be a 1% “Earned Income Tax”, which does NOT tax retirement income, interest, dividends, capital gains, or social security. Wilmington City School District serves more than 2100 students from a 161 square mile area.

For District financial information, facts, FAQs, and the Board of Education’s plan to address an estimated $5 million dollar deficit if there is no new levy, visit Questions can be directed to the Treasurer at (937) 382-1641.
