Study: Ohio a High Property Tax State

According to a new comparison by the Tax Foundation, Ohio’s property taxes — levied and collected by local governments — are ninth highest in the U.S. when taken as a percentage of owner-occupied housing value.

Roughly two-thirds of Ohio’s property taxes go to school districts, according to the County Commissioners Association of Ohio. The Ohio Department of Taxation reports that in tax year 2019, Ohio school districts’ operating levies yielded approximately $11 billion in taxes on property. 9/9/2020
