Study: Ohio’s Property Tax Burden Above U.S. Average

A new comparison by finds that Ohio’s effective real-estate tax rate is 1.56%. As a result, Ohioans pay nearly $3,400 in annual property taxes on a house that’s worth $217,500 — the median home value in the U.S. This is the 11th highest property tax burden in the nation and well above the country’s average property tax bill ($2,471). However, Ohio’s property tax burden is considerably less than that of 12 other states, including a few Big Ten Conference states. 2/23/2021
