School District Taxable Property Values, Taxes Levied and Tax Rates for Current Expenses, and Average Property Values Per Pupil, Tax Year 1989
In the 1989 tax year, Ohio school districts’ current operating levies yielded a total of $3.9 billion in property taxes on the taxable value of $117.6 billion. These total amounts included $2.6 billion in real property taxes charged against the taxable value of $86.5 billion and $1.3 billion in tangible property taxes charged against the taxable value of $31.2 billion. Public utility real and tangible property is included in the figures. All taxes shown are after application of "tax reduction factors," but include tax amounts reduced under various property tax relief programs, since these are fully reimbursed to local school districts by the state (i.e., the 10 percent, and 2.5 percent rollbacks, and homestead exemption programs for real property, and the $10,000 exemption program for personal property).
