Property valuation is a crucial aspect of education law, as many recent reports in local media throughout Ohio have demonstrated.
Thanks to the ongoing slow economic recovery, many property owners are utilizing the tax complaint process in an effort to decrease their property taxes. These proceedings before Ohio’s county boards of revision have an outsized impact on school districts and their potential tax revenue. Boiled down, this means that many Ohio school districts are losing precious tax dollars at a time when state funding has also been slashed.
McGown & Markling provides Ohio school boards with representation before boards of revision, the Ohio Board of Tax Appeals, courts of appeal, and the Ohio Supreme Court to ensure the proper valuation of property located in their school districts.
We are prepared to assist you in reviewing and analyzing how your school board can file increase-complaints and counter-complaints with your county board of revision in a cost effective manner.
