Taxes


Under Ohio law, the Auditor cannot raise or lower property taxes. Tax rates are determined by the budgetary requests of each governmental unit as authorized by vote of the people, and are computed in strict accordance with procedures required by the Division of Tax Equalization, Ohio Department of Taxation. 

Annually, the Auditor prepares the general tax list. Your tax bill is based on the tax rate multiplied by your property valuation. This is your proportional share of the cost of operating your local government including schools, cities, townships, villages, and the county.

Ohio law limits the amount of taxation without a vote of the people to what is known as the "10 mill limitation" ($10.00 per $1,000 of assessed valuation). Any additional real estate taxes for any purpose must be voted by county residents. Your "tax rate" is an accumulation of all these levies and bond issues.
