1986 Income Tax Returns By School District
Table Y-2 contains information from 1986 Ohio personal income
tax returns categorized by school district as indicated by
taxpayers on their returns. State law requires that Ohio
income tax returns include a line on which taxpayers indicate
their school district of residence.
A total of 4,229,464 Ohio personal income tax returns were
filed for tax year 1986 (April 15, 1987 filing deadline).
Taxpayers indicated their school district of residence on
3,813,290 returns, 90.2% of the total. This is the same
percentage as 1985 returns.
It should be noted that, since 9.8% of the tax returns cannot
be associated with any particular school district, the total
figures for each school district shown in Table Y-2 are
understated. However, the average income figure for each
school district might not be seriously affected by this.
The statewide average income (federal adjusted gross income)
reported on all 1986 tax returns was $25,518 per return. The
Ottawa Hills Local School District in Lucas County reported
the highest average income of all 615 school districts, with
$82,617 per return. The lowest average income was reported in
Western Local School District in Pike County, with $14,959
In addition to showing the number of returns filed by
residents of each school district, the average income, and
the income ranking, Table Y-2 indicates three other items of
information for each district. These include the number of
personal exemptions claimed on returns (for taxpayer, spouse,
and dependents), the total income and the total income tax
