Updated Levy Estimator Available to Help Voters for April Primary Election

COLUMBUS, Ohio – With the deadline to submit absentee ballots for the Ohio Primary approaching on April 28, Franklin County Auditor Michael Stinziano reminded voters Thursday that the updated Levy Estimator is available to help residents understand how levies and bond issues on the ballot will affect their property taxes.

Levies and bond issues are on the ballot in several jurisdictions across the county, including: Clinton Township, Franklin Township, Hamilton Township, Mifflin Township, Washington Township, and the Southwest Public Library district. There is also a countywide bond issue for Columbus State Community College.

“As the former Director of the Board of Elections, I encourage everyone to be informed, and make sure your voice is heard and GO VOTE,” Stinziano said.

To use the Levy Estimator, visit apps.franklincountyauditor.com/LevyEstimator. After selecting your home’s location or entering a parcel number, the estimator will show both your current and estimated taxes if a levy or bond issue in your jurisdiction passes in the April election.

An informational postcard announcing the availability of the updated Levy Estimator was mailed to Franklin County homeowners in February.

Due to the current public health emergency, voting deadlines have changed. Voters can request a ballot from the Franklin County Board of Elections.

Mail-in ballots must be postmarked by April 27, and all ballots must be received by the Franklin County Board of Elections by 7:30 pm on April 28. In-person voting is limited to people with disabilities or those lacking a home address.
