An Explanation of Cuyahoga County Property Tax Rates

Voted Tax Rate
The total rate approved by the voters in your taxing district for support of your school district, library, municipality, vocational school, community college, metro park system and county-wide services. This rate also includes 10 mills of unvoted taxes guaranteed by the Ohio Constitution.

Effective Tax Rate
Your tax rate after the tax reduction factor is applied. You are protected from unvoted increases in taxes by Ohio legislation known as House Bill 920. Passed in 1976, HB 920 reduces your rate as property values in your district increase during triennial reappraisals and updates.

Tax as a Percentage of Market
A simple percentage used to estimate total property taxes for a property. Multiply the market value of the property by the percentage listed for your taxing.



Additional factors affecting your tax bill:

Special Assessments - charges by your city or county to cover the cost of improvements of services.

Homestead Exemption - a reduction in property taxes available to senior citizens and disabled homeowners with limited incomes.
