A small Ohio town is proposing a retroactive income tax, to ensure they get a share of a winning lottery ticket sold in that town, presumably to a resident:
Officials in the southwest Ohio village of Amelia say they are resisting the urge to quickly pass a local income tax to get a share of the $196 million lottery ticket that was sold there.
The windfall could mean more than $1 million to the struggling village of about 4,000 people east of Cincinnati.
Pathetic. Had they considered just asking the winner to endow a civic-improvement foundation with some of his/her money?
