What is changing?

  • Since the 1970s, Ohio law provided residential property owners a 10% and a 2.5% reduction in property tax. The state of Ohio essentially subsidized property owners’ taxes with income and sales taxes paid by all Ohioans. Now, residential property owners will pay the full tax related to certain new levies.
