2018 Real Property Tax Abstract by Taxing District

Property tax rate abstracts (DTE 27) are filed with the Ohio Department of Taxation, Tax Equalization Division annually by each county auditor.

Property tax rate abstracts contain gross tax rates by levy as passed by the electorate or adjusted by resolution. The Tax Equalization Division calculates tax reduction factors and generates the Composite Report (DTE515) which includes the gross rate and effective tax rates for each tax levy. See this section of ODT's Annual Report for more information.

The data file compiles the composite report by taxing district and provides gross and effective tax rates, purpose/type, and levy year for every levy in existence in the state of Ohio. The number of records in this file is 125,157. To isolate a particular location, use the data/filter tool. A readme.txt file is available to explain the variables and fields.
