Rates of Taxation
Annually, the Auditor prepares the General Tax list and duplicate. Your property tax bill is based on the tax rate multiplied by your valuation on this duplicate. This is your proportionate share of the cost of operating your local government including Schools, Townships, Villages, and the County. Ohio law limits the amount of taxation without a vote of the people to what is known as the “10 mill limit” ($10 per thousand of assessed valuation). Any additional real estate taxes for any purpose must be voted by County residents. Your “tax rate” is an accumulation of all these levies and bond issues. Listed below is a table which shows the amount of tax on a $100,000 home in selected Franklin and Delaware County Tax Districts for tax year 2013. The complete tables can be found at the Franklin County Auditor’s Tax Rates and Delaware County Auditor’s Tax Rates.

In addition to property taxes some municipalities also levy a Municipal Income Tax. The tax is paid by residents of a city or village that has imposed a municipal income tax, nonresidents who work in such a municipality and businesses that have earned net profits within the municipality. The tax applies to wages, salaries, and other compensation earned by the aforementioned parties. States law requires a flat rate within a municipality. The rate is determined locally with a maximum rate of 1% without voter approval. Rates range from 0-3% in Ohio. Municipalities may offer partial or full credit to residents who pay municipal income taxes to a different municipality where they are employed. The table below illustrates the various municipal rates for select Central Ohio Cities, however, you are also encouraged to check these rates at The City of Columbus’ Office of the City Auditor’s Income Tax Division. You can also search for tax rates using a specific property address.
