There will be 13 health and human services levies in 11 counties on the March 19th primary ballot. Health and human service levies in this primary include behavioral health, developmental disabilities, senior services, children’s services, and health departments. Proposed property tax levies across Ohio use mills, which is used to portray the amount of money a homeowner would pay for a levy. One mill of a levy is one dollar per $1,000 of appraised value. Ohio law has three classifications for tax levies: Additional, renewal, and replacement.
