  • The Business Sector's Contribution to Dublin

    The Foundation for Growth, Stability and Prosperity

    In Dublin, Ohio, we are very fortunate to have a strong and growing business community. This is important because businesses in Dublin play a vital role in providing funding for city and school services. Taxes from businesses and their employees finance the majority of costs for city services and a considerable portion of school services. And, Dublin businesses and employees also benefit from the city's well-maintained infrastructure, bike paths, police protection and responsive snow removal.
     
    Without the support and participation of businesses, residents alone could not fund the quality of life enjoyed in Dublin.

    • In 2015, city income tax revenue was approximately $87.5 million, which makes up 80% of all operating revenues.

    • More than 90% of city income taxes come from Dublin businesses (payroll withholdings/net-profit taxes).

    • About 75% of employees working in Dublin do not reside in the city, meaning they pay an income tax but do not use all of the city services.

    • Dublin is home to more than 3,000 businesses with more than 70,000 employees.

    • Dublin City Schools received 25% of their local revenues from property taxes paid by local businesses in 2015.

    • Local businesses contribute 19% of the cost to educate each child in the Dublin City School District ($2,524 of the $13,213 Cost Per Pupil).

    • Business executives hold key positions on committees that are developing the community-based Dublin City Schools Strategic Plan. These committee members also advise the district on school building design, construction issues and the best way to utilize tax dollars.

    • Dublin executives founded the Dublin Education Foundation in 1999, which supports educational projects in Dublin City Schools classrooms.
