Property Tax Rates


The Fiscal Officer cannot and does not raise or lower taxes.  There are 74 taxing authorities in Summit County. They include the County of Summit, 5 county agencies, 26 school districts, 3 library districts, 12 cities, 10 villages, 9 townships, 1 water district, 1 fire district and 1 cemetery district.  Each of these taxing authorities are responsible for putting their own levies on the ballot for the voters to approve.  Real property taxes levied in Ohio are taxes imposed on the value of the property.

The Tax Settlement & Budget Department in the Auditor Division of the Fiscal Office maintains all tax rates and distributes tax revenues that have been levied and collected to taxing authorities in Summit County. They prepare all audit reports for the State of Ohio Department of Taxation and provide revenue estimates for all the taxing authorities.
