Ohio Senate Bill 57 (S.B. 57) offers you (or your triple-net lease tenant), a chance to reduce your Ohio real property taxes. Governor DeWine recently signed Senate Bill (S.B.) 57, a law that affects Ohio real property tax valuation and will now permit certain tenants of commercial and industrial properties to file BOR complaints.
Taxpayers with properties negatively affected by the COVID-19 pandemic or state COVID-19 orders should move quickly to consult with legal counsel and an appraiser to determine whether a special tax year 2020 complaint is in their best interests. Property owners may file special 2020 complaints after July 26, 2021, when the law takes effect, and must file them before Aug. 25, 2021.
