State Rep. Al Cutrona (R-Canfield) cosponsored and voted in favor of the Ohio Homeowners Relief Act on Wednesday, which was approved by the Ohio House of Representatives. Cutrona is a cosponsor of the bill and has consistently worked this year to provide property tax relief at the Statehouse.
“It’s been one of my top priorities to provide property tax relief for Ohioans here in Mahoning County,” Cutrona said. “Property tax owners, whether that’s seniors, farmers, or others, should not be burdened with both high inflation and rising taxes. I’m optimistic that as this bill moves over to the Senate, we can get a final product that saves money for our taxpayers.”
The Ohio Homeowners Relief Act, a direct legislative response to increases in property taxes, will modify the procedures used by the Tax Commissioner to conduct property tax sales assessment ratio studies.
Specifically, the bill will require the Commissioner to work alongside local elected officials and weigh the past three years of a county’s property values in order to determine property taxes instead of just one.
The Ohio Homeowners Relief Act now moves to the Ohio Senate for consideration.
