What is a levy?
  • The Ohio Constitution states that property taxes shall be assessed at no more than 1% of value, unless otherwise approved by the electorate via a voted tax levy. This special tax is typically limited by the voters to fund specific expenses.
  • The voters establish a set dollar value for a levy. This is the maximum amount of money that a levy can ever generate in a given year. Therefore, growth in property values will not lead to an increase in tax revenue.
