COLUMBUS—The Ohio House of Representatives this week passed House Bill 187, the Ohio Homeowners Relief Act, announced State Rep. Jennifer Gross (R-West Chester).

The Ohio Homeowners Relief Act, co-sponsored by Gross, will help Ohioans remain in their homes by modifying the procedures used by the Tax Commissioner to conduct property tax sales assessment ratio studies to produce fair property valuations. 

“This legislation is critical in protecting the residents of the 45th House District from the burden of rising property taxes,” said Rep. Gross. "This legislation will place more control into the hands of local elected officials—the individuals who know their counties best.”

Butler County is one of many Ohio counties facing property tax increases because a projected 42% increase on property value and a 110% increase on farmland.

House Bill 187 now heads to the Ohio Senate for consideration.
