If passed by voters, a proposed 0.5 percent Buckeye Valley income tax increase that will appear on the November ballot will cost less than previously reported by the Gazette.

The new 0.5 percent tax would cost someone who makes a $40,000 salary an additional $200 a year. That number, when added to the existing 1 percent BV income tax, would mean that same person would pay Buckeye Valley $600 a year total in income taxes.

The higher figure that appeared in last Saturday’s Gazette was based on a reporter’s error.
