Newtown Finance & Income Tax
How Your Money is Being Spent
Good government dictates that the taxpayers who are paying the bills know how their money is being spent. Visit Newtown.OhioCheckbook.com, to see how your taxpayer dollars are being spent.
OhioCheckbook.com was launched on December 2, 2014, marking the first time in Ohio history when citizens could actually see every expenditure in state government. OhioCheckbook.com is a first-of-its-kind government transparency website that shows taxpayers exactly how their tax money is being spent. This initiative sets a new national standard for transparency in state and local government. In an effort to promote transparency, Mayor Kobasuk and Village Council agreed to participate in the OhioCheckbook initiative.
The Village of Newtown is excited to participate and partner with the Ohio Treasurer of State’s Office in this important initiative.
