Rep. Brennan Supports Legislation to Protect Ohioans from Rising Property Taxes

COLUMBUS – State Rep. Sean Patrick Brennan (D-Parma) today announced that the Ohio House recently passed House Bill (HB) 187 - the Ohio Homeowners Relief Act. Rep. Brennan was one of three Democrats who supported this legislation which will protect Ohioans by modifying the procedures used to calculate property valuations.

“Property values have gone up dramatically over the past few years. I voted to support HB 187 in committee and on the floor to ease the rising property tax burden facing homeowners, many of whom are on fixed incomes, which is one of my top priorities,” said Rep. Brennan.

The bill will require county tax commissioners to work alongside local elected officials to weigh the past three years of a county’s property values in order to determine property tax, instead of just one.  

In addition to the Ohio Homeowners Relief Act, Rep. Brennan co-sponsored House Bill 33, the Ohio state operating budget, which included a provision to automatically increase Ohio’s Homestead Exemption to combat inflation, providing further property tax relief for elderly Ohioans and disabled veterans.

The Ohio Homeowners Relief Act has been sent to the Ohio Senate for further consideration.
