The upcoming election will feature one or more levies that may affect your property tax bill (Metro Parks, Franklin County Board of Developmental Disabilities, Grandview Heights City Schools). To learn more about the potential impact of these levies on your property tax bill, you can visit the “Tax Levy Estimator” on the Franklin County Auditor’s website (www.FranklinCountyAuditor.com). Once you find your property on the Auditor’s website (“Property Search”), click on the “Quick Links” selection in the column of options on the left side of the page. Once that page opens, you can find the “Levy Estimator” as an option under the “Calculators” category. The information provided will identify both current levies in place and the impact of the levies being considered at the upcoming election.
NOTE: Grandview Heights City Schools currently has a 1.9 mill bond levy in place that will expire after 2019 collections, at the same time collections for the new issue would be phased-in. As a result, residents will have an offsetting reduction to the proposed new millage increase shown on the Franklin County Auditor’s Tax Estimator. The amount residents pay on the current levy can be viewed by scrolling down to the bottom of the Tax Estimator page, where the cost of existing levies is shown. The levy that will be ending is listed under Grandview Heights CSD as expiring 2020. So, the levy amount noted for the proposals being considered on the November ballot can be reduced by the expiring levy amount, providing the actual impact on your property taxes.
Also, you can access a video of Grandview Heights School Treasurer Beth Collier explaining the impact of the proposed levy by clicking here.
