2001 Income Tax Returns By School District
Table Y-2 contains information from 2001 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 5,386,619 Ohio personal income tax returns were filed for tax year 2001 (April 15, 2002 filing deadline). Of these, 5,272,934 (98 percent) indicated a school district of residence.
The statewide average income (federal adjusted gross income) reported on all 2001 tax returns was $47,521 per return, a decrease of 4.0 percent from the 2000 returns. The Indian Hill Exempted Village School District in Hamilton County reported the highest average income of all 613 school districts, with $216,263 per return. The lowest average income was reported in New Boston Local School District in Scioto County, with $23,408 per return.
In addition to showing the number of returns filed by residents of each school district, the average and median 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 liability.
