Tangible Personal Property Tax Data
Taxes Levied by All Governmental Units and Value of Property, by City, Calendar Year 1989

Tangible personal property taxes levied within cities by all local governments in Ohio for calendar year 1989 were $738.1 million on a total assessed value of $11.5 billion. Both of these figures are after deduction of the $10,000 exemption granted each taxpayer. However, local governments were reimbursed by the state for the revenue loss caused by the $10,000 exemption.

School districts levied taxes of $521.2 million on tangible personal property within cities; counties levied $140.1 million on property within cities; and townships levied $3.2 million within cities. In addition, city governments themselves levied $73.7 million on tangible personal property within cities. These figures represent taxes levied for 1989 to be collected in the same year.

The figures in the first five columns represent the taxes levied by each type of governmental unit on the property within each city. For example, for the city of Akron, the figure in the county column ($5,189,509) represents the tangible personal property taxes levied on property within Akron's city limits by Summit County. The figures in the column for delinquent taxes represent total delinquent taxes as accumulated over all previous years.

The figures shown have been compiled from abstracts filed by county auditors with the Ohio Department of Taxation, Tax Equalization Division.
