Once again, a substantial remedy to the downtown vs. suburban fracas would be to rescind the local income taxes and school district income taxes throughout Ohio, replacing them with a higher state-wide income tax. If individual jurisdictions still feel under-taxed, they can raise their local sales tax.

Something useful to check (I’m too lazy to do it myself): how goes the urban-renewal in states that have uniform statewide income taxes, and no local income taxes, vs. those who have an Ohio-like patchwork of taxes?

And another question: what happens to the property-value of those downtown condos in 5-10 years, once the tax-abatements will have expired?
