Cuyahoga Falls Schools to Get More Than $100,000 in Casino Taxes This Month

The Woodridge Schools will receive about $42,000.

Schools in Cuyahoga Falls will soon receive more than $100,000 in taxes from the state’s new casinos. 

Figures for this first set of payments were released earlier this week. The Plain Dealer reports that the state is passing out more than $37.9 million in casino taxes to schools and districts across Ohio. Schools will receive their payments—based on enrollment—in January and August each year. 

Check out the Plain Dealer article for more information on how the casino taxes are divided between schools, cities and more. 

Cuyahoga Falls City Schools will receive about $102,900, and the Woodridge Local Schools will receive about $42,000, according to information on the Ohio Department of Taxation's website. Summit County schools, including charter schools, will receive about $1,629,158 total.

I have to agree Lynne! If they are going to get this much from casino taxes we should get a little break!
