Ohio Real Estate Taxes - commonly referred to as "property taxes" - are collected by the County Treasurer twice a year, based on the assessment of value made by the County Fiscal Officer. Property tax collections take place in December/ January (called the "first half" collection) and June/July (called the "second half" collection). The exact dates change from year to year - the due date is noted on your tax bill. In accordance with state law property taxes are billed at the end of the year in which they are assessed. Thus the taxes billed in December 2012 (and due in January 2013) are the taxes assessed for the first half of 2012. Although you will normally be billed for property taxes twice a year, you may also choose to pay once per year or in convenient monthly installments. You can also choose to have your tax payments automatically withdrawn from your checking or savings account.
Property taxes are the main source of revenue for school districts; approximately 60% of your tax payment goes to your local school district.
