The Ohio House version of the state budget is expected to including some major changes, especially for small businesses.  

House Speaker Larry Householder (R-Glenford) said he wants to trim the income tax deduction that many one-person businesses and partnerships can take on the first $250,000 of their incomes. That’s amounted to more than a billion dollars a year. Householder wants to pull that back to the first $100,000 of income. And he also wants to look at what he calls special cutouts – breaks that both conservative and liberal groups have called out as potentially costly.

Governor Mike DeWine’s proposed budget includes a provision that would bring the state less revenue – but it’s not a tax cut. 

Raising the buying age from 18 to 21 statewide would cut down on the numbers of young people who start smoking, says Ohio Department of Health Director Amy Acton. But it could also help with infant mortality among young mothers, and could stop huge increases in the use of electronic cigarettes.
