COLUMBUS—State Representative Tim Ginter (R-Salem) today applauded the Ohio House’s passage of legislation granting certain veterans’ organizations an exemption from property taxes.


House Bill 24, sponsored by Rep. Ginter, expands a current tax exemption for property to qualifying 501(c)(4) veterans’ organizations that are exempt from federal income tax. Property that is not used for meetings, administrative needs, or to provide programs or services is excluded from this exemption.


“It was an honor to work with Attorney Fineman and all the veterans of DAV East Liverpool Post #47 on this legislation,” said Ginter. “When they brought the situation to my attention, I knew it was an issue that would affect disabled veterans throughout all of Ohio. House Bill 24 simply brings our qualifying veterans organizations in line with other charitable organizations already exempted from property tax in Ohio and serves to honor the brave service men and women who protect our freedom every day. I am proud to sponsor this bill on behalf of our veterans in Ohio.”


House Bill 24 now heads to the Ohio Senate for consideration.
