The Ohio Library Council recently reported on House Bill 483 with the following recommendations that effect the Public Library Fund. 

The final report includes a total of over $400 million in tax reductions in the following three primary areas:  1) temporary increase in the small business tax deduction from 50% to 75%. This will reduce the PLF an additional $4.8 Million in fiscal year (FY) 15.

2) An acceleration of the personal income tax cuts (from HB 59 enacted last summer). This will reduce the PLF an additional $1.66 Million in FY 15. 3)  An increase in personal income tax exemption amounts. This will reduce the PLF an additional $1.22 
Million in FY 15.

These proposed tax reductions will reduce the PLF by an estimated $7.68 million in FY 15. This means the money we receive from the state will be drastically cut.  The village of Ashley and Oxford township levy that was passed will be coming up for renewal next year and it is vital for us to continue library services to the community.
