Auditor Encouraging Taxpayer Awareness

Mahoning County - Auditor Ralph T. Meacham has provided the property tax net distributions for subdivisions in Mahoning County for tax years 2015 to 2017. Taxes assessed in 2017 were paid in 2018, therefore the distributions provided were paid in 2016, 2017 and 2018.

With the recent issuance of current tax bills, the Auditor believes taxpayers should know how their tax dollars are being distributed.

Recipients are divided into five categories. In 2018 the total distributions by category were:

As they pay their current tax bills, all should be aware of where their money is going."
