An additional tax for the benefit of the Three Rivers Local School District, County of Hamilton, Ohio for the purpose of CURRENT OPERATING EXPENSES at a rate not exceeding eight and two-tenths (8.2) mills for each one dollar of valuation, which amounts to eighty-two cents ($0.82) for each one hundred dollars of valuation, for a continuing period of time, commencing in 2000, first due in calendar year 2001.
WHAT IS A MILL? The property tax is measured in mills; a mill is one tenth of a cent. This translates to $1 for each $1,000 taxable value of the property. The taxable value is 35% of the fair market value, which is determined by the County Auditor's Office. A reappraisal, as required by state law, was done in 1999.
WHAT IS A RENEWAL LEVY? A Renewal Levy is the continuance of an existing levy with the collection rate at the same dollar amount as when the levy was originally approved. (Reference: Ohio Secretary of State office)
WHAT IS A REPLACEMENT LEVY A replacement levy is a NEW LEVY FOR THE SAME PURPOSE AS THE EXISTING LEVY but with a different collection rate than the levy it replaces. The collection rate uses the assessed value of the property at the time of the replacement. (Reference: Ohio Secretary of State office)
WHAT IS AN EMERGENCY TAX LEVY? An Emergency Tax Levy allows a SCHOOL system to receive a specific dollar amount that will not change with property evaluations during the term of the levy. Once a school levy has been designated an Emergency Tax Levy, it must retain that earmark.
WHAT IS A ZONING REFERENDUM? A Zoning Referendum is used only by citizens of a township to override their trustees' vote. Signatures by petition, equal to 8% of the vote cast in the last gubernatorial election, must be collected for a zoning referendum to be placed on the ballot.
