No. In 1976, Ohio Legislature enacted House Bill 920 to prevent school districts from collecting more money due to valuation increases from reappraisals or triennial updates than was approved by voters. If property values in a district increase, the millage rate on a voted levy is decreased so that the levy only generates the amount of money approved by voters. However, to prevent millage rates from being reduced too low, Ohio has instituted a 20-mill floor which means that a school’s millage rate cannot be reduced below 20 mills. Additionally, Ohio law does allow 10 mills of inside millage which can be levied without voter approval and is to be shared by the public schools and government entities in each district. New levies that were passed at an election and effective for Tax year 2020 Calendar Year 2021 will increase property taxes.
