The Wauseon School Board of Education has set the income tax percentage they will be seeking on the November ballot to bring-in revenue for the district operations. It’s been calculated, Wauseon Schools need just over 4 million dollars of revenue annually to meet their needs, and a 2% income tax would accomplish that.1.75% of that figure would go toward current expenses, while the remaining .25% would be utilized for permanent improvements. The 2% income tax Wauseon Schools are seeking would be for a five year period.
