Property Tax

What are Property Taxes?

Property taxes collect money based on the valuation of real estate in a given area. Counties, cities, towns, villages, school districts, and special districts each raise money through real estate taxes.  Governments have the ability to levy taxes upon land located within their jurisdiction. 

In the City of North Canton the money collected from taxes funds fire/EMS service, roads improvement and paving, and supports storm sewer services. North Canton Residents also support their local school district and the North Canton Library through property taxes.

Voted Tax Rate

The voted tax rate is the total rate approved by the voters in our City. This rate also includes 10 mills of non-voted taxes guaranteed by the Ohio Constitution.

Effective Tax Rate

This is your tax rate after the tax reduction factor is applied. You are protected from non-voted increases in taxes by Ohio legislation known as House Bill 920. Passed in 1976, HB920 reduces your tax rate as property values in your district increase during triennial reappraisals and updates.

Tax as a percentage of Market

A simple percentage used to estimate total property taxes for a home. Multiply the market value of the home by the percentage listed for your taxing district.

Mill

One mill is the equivalent of $1 of tax for each $1,000 of the assessed value of a resident’s home. The assessed value is 35% of the estimated market value of the property. If a property has a market value of $100,000, the assessed value is $35,000. One mill generates $35 of tax receipts ($35,000 times 1). However, the homeowner only pays 87.5% or $30.63, and the State pays the remaining $4.37.
