A message from the Team Leader
Welcome to the Tax Working Group! We look forward to sharing the results of our research on property taxes in Northeast Ohio, which shows our property taxes overall are growing at an unsustainable rate. Property taxes damage the financial viability of too many of our neighbors, and we hope you will partner with us by fighting property tax levies in your community by utilizing our anti-levy advice and campaign know how. The unsustainable rise in property taxes is a very serious issue which confronts all of us, but we must solve the needs of our community in ways which do not exclusively rely on taxpayer dollars. We look forward to working with you! Thanks,Tom
