Your property tax bill is calculated by multiplying the assessed value of your property (equal to 35% of your property's market value) by the effective tax rate in your district. This is your proportional share of the cost of operating your local government, including schools, townships, villages and the county.
Tax rates are determined by the budgetary requests of each governmental unit. Ohio law limits the total amount of taxation without a vote of the people to 10 mills ($10.00 per $1,000 of assessed valuation). Any additional taxes for any purpose whatsoever must be voted on by county residents. Your tax rate is an accumulation of all these voted levies and bond issues. The rates of taxation for the last five years can be found below.
