How to Appeal PropertyTaxes in Ohio
Once the complaint is received, the BOR will take two actions. First, if the owner is seeking a decrease in property value of more than $50,000, the BOR will notify the local school district. School districts generally receive between 65 percent to 70 percent of property taxes collected, meaning that they are the government entity most affected. If the school district decides to become involved with the owner's case, its counsel is allowed to cross-examine the owner's witnesses and to present its own evidence of the property's value.
