* Taxable Value - Ohio property taxes are levied against the assessed value or 35% of the appraised value of the property.

** Cost Before Rollback (Reduction Factor) - Assessed value / 1,000 x effective millage rate.

*** 12.5% Rollback (Reduction Factor) - A 10% tax relief measure was adopted by the state in 1971 on all annual property tax bills. An additional 2.5% rollback applicable to owner-occupied homes was granted in 1979. However, the state does not provide the rollbacks on new or replacement levies passed after 2013. As a result, the state uses an effective rollback rate for each community. For unincorporated Washington Township, the rate is 9.676%.
