Strongsville's Tax Rate for 2013: Up a Bit

Here are the numbers that make up your property tax bill this year

 

Strongsville's tax rate will rise by about 2 mills this year, according to data provided by The Plain Dealer and Cleveland.com.

Homeowners will pay $2,218 for every $100,000 in home value this year, up from $2,153 last year, according to the database.

Overall millage stands at 72.43 this year, compared to 70.30 in 2012.

The modest increase comes despite voter approval of an $81 million bond issue to build a new middle school and renovate existing schools. 

The tax adds about $100 a year per $100,000 to a property owner's tax bill, but because other millage expired, the increase amounts to only about $25 a year.

The Strongsville schools get the largest share, with 41.18 mills costing $1,281 per $100,000 valuation.

The county gets the next-highest amount, or $405. The city collects 7.48 mills, which translates to $229 per $100,000.

At least the home values decreased to offset the increase, so people won't see much difference.

Actually, I believe most people saw about a 1% decrease in their RE tax bill even though the rate went up 3% because most saw their property decrease by 4%. There of course will be exceptions.
