    A RESOLUTION DECLARING IT NECESSARY TO RAISE ANNUALLY AN ADDITIONAL AMOUNT FOR SCHOOL DISTRICT PURPOSES AND REQUESTING THE STATE TAX COMMISSIONER TO ESTIMATE THE RESPECTIVE RATES AT WHICH IT WOULD BE NECESSARY TO LEVY AN AD VALOREM PROPERTY TAX AND A SCHOOL DISTRICT INCOME TAX TO PRODUCE THAT AMOUNT

     

     

    WHEREAS, the Board of Education of the Hicksville Exempted Village School District (the “Board”) finds that the amount of taxes which may be raised within the ten-mill limitation by levies on the current tax duplicate will be insufficient to provide an adequate amount for the necessary requirements of the Board; and

     

                WHEREAS, the Board believes an income tax on the school district income of individuals and estates as defined in divisions (E)(1)(a) and (2) of section 5748.01 of the Revised Code, also known as a traditional income tax,may be the best means to adequately meet the necessary requirements of the School District; and

     

    WHEREAS, in order to assist it in determining whether to submit to the electors of the School District the question of a school district income tax pursuant to Section 5748.02 of the Revised Code, the Board, in accordance with Section 5748.02(A) of the Revised Code, wishes to know the respective rates at which it would be necessary to levy an ad valorem property tax and a school district income tax to produce the additional amount that will be adequate to meet the necessary requirements of the School District; and

     

    WHEREAS, in accordance with Division (A) of Section 5748.02 of the Revised Code, upon receipt of a certified copy of this Resolution declaring the necessity of raising annually a specified amount of money for school district purposes, the State Tax Commissioner is to estimate the property tax rate that would have to be imposed by this Board in the current year to produce an equivalent amount of money from an ad valorem property tax and the income tax rate that would have had to have been in effect for the current year to produce an equivalent amount of money from a school district income tax.

     

    NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVEDby the Board of Education of the Hicksville Exempted Village School District that: 

     

     

     

    SECTION I

     

    This Board finds, determines and declares that it is necessary to raise annually the additional amount of [INSERT AMOUNT OF MONEY YOU ESTIMATE WOULD BE ANNUALLY GENERATED BY EACH INCOME TAX RATE YOU ARE CONSIDERING] Dollars ($900,000.00) for school district purposes and to levy either an additional ad valorem property tax outside the ten mill limitation or an income tax on the school district income of individuals and estates as defined in divisions (E)(1)(a) and (2) of section 5748.01 of the Revised Code, also known as a traditional income tax, for the purpose of providing for the current expenses of the Board of Education.  

     

    SECTION II

     

    In accordance with Section 5748.02(A) of the Revised Code, the Board requests the State Tax Commissioner to estimate, for the May 7, 2019 election, both (a) the property tax rate that would have to be imposed by this Board in the current year to produce an amount equivalent to the amount specified in Section I from an additional ad valorem property tax; and (b) the income tax rate that would have had to have been in effect for the current year to produce an amount equivalent to the amount specified in Section I from a school district income tax.

     

    SECTION III

     

    The Treasurer of this Board is authorized and directed to deliver a certified copy of this resolution to the State Tax Commissioner at the earliest possible time, but no later than 100 days prior to May 7, 2019

     

    SECTION IV

     

    This resolution shall be effective immediately upon its adoption by a vote of 2/3 or more of the entire Board.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    SECTION V

     

    IT IS FOUND AND DETERMINEDthat all formal action of this Board of Education concerning or related to the adoption of this Resolution was adopted in an open meeting of this Board, and all deliberations of this Board that resulted in such formal action were adopted in meetings open to the public, in compliance with all applicable requirements of the Ohio Revised Code.
