Our thoughts and prayers continue to be with the families of our enlisted soldiers. Our lasting thanks go to the men and women defending our freedoms.
Put into place on January 21, 1991, our Military Reserves Plan extended time allowed for payment of real estate taxes for residents called to active duty during Desert Storm and Desert Shield. Penalty and interest was waived and payment plans were made available if needed. In June 1991 the Ohio Legislature passed Sub. H.B. 93 to extend the time allowed for payment of taxes by the other 87 counties.Our reactivated plan was passed by Summit County Council on October 29, 2001 in connection with Operation Enduring Justice, caused by the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001. The Resolution again postponed the deadline for payment of real property taxes and waived all penalty and interest for reservists from Summit County. On February 20, 2002, H.B. 390 was passed by the Ohio Legislature to extend time allowed for payment of taxes by the other 87 counties. The Governor signed the bill March 4, 2002; it became effective the same day.
Our program will continue for as long as necessary.
