Updated Levy Estimator Now Available to Help Homeowners

COLUMBUS, Ohio – Franklin County Auditor Michael Stinziano reminded voters Friday that with several proposed levies and bond issues on the ballot in November, the updated Levy Estimator is now available to help homeowners understand how the levies and bonds will affect their property taxes.

Three issues for Worthington City Schools will be on the ballot, as is a proposed levy for Upper Arlington Schools, a proposed levy to support Franklin Township Police, a bond issue to support Columbus City Schools, and a bond issue for the City of Grandview Heights.  In total there are 19 levies and bond issues that will be on the ballot.

“The services you receive and the taxes you pay are on this November’s ballot, as are important decisions on your representatives in the state government and congress. It’s never been so important to make sure your voice is heard and GO VOTE!,” Stinziano said.

One of the more significant proposed levies is in Franklin Township, where a 7.4 mill levy would fund the township police department. It would cost a homeowner of a $100,000 house $259 per year for five years. In Upper Arlington, a proposed operating levy would fund Upper Arlington City Schools and would cost the owner of a $100,000 house $241.50 in new property taxes.

In the City of Columbus, a bond issue to support Columbus City Schools would cost $102.55 in new property taxes per $100,000 of home value.

In Worthington, a proposed 4.56 mill bond to support Worthington schools will increase property taxes for the owner of a $100,000 house by $159.60, while a separate operating levy would increase property taxes for a $100,000 home by $101.50. A third, permanent improvement levy would also support Worthington schools and would cost the owner of a $100,000 house $68.50.

In Upper Arlington, a 6.9 mill levy on the ballot would support the school district and its services and would increase property taxes on a $100,000 home by $241.50.     

Election Day is November 8, and early voting and absentee voting begins October 11. The deadline to register to vote for this November’s election is October 10. For more information, visit the Franklin County Board of Elections website.
