Calculating impact of levies on the ballot

Kudos to the Lucas County Auditor's office and Anita Lopez for the two new tools on the AREIS online website. One shows your current property taxes, percentages and dollar amounts, and where they go. The other calculates how much in taxes you will pay if property tax levies that are on the upcoming ballot all pass.

This Blade article gives more detail as well as how to obtain the information if you don't have a computer.

To see your information, go here and enter either your name or address. After selecting your property, the DATA tab has the two new tools highlighted.

This is a terrific tool and great information for every property owner in Lucas County.

Wow, what an eye opener! If all the issues on my ballot in Sylvania Township pass, I'll be looking at a $348/year increase, close to 6%!

Everyone who takes the time to vote should look at this site. Think about not only what it does to you, but to your neighbors! Wow!

Interesting to notice that liberal blogs like Glass City Jungle have kept quiet about this.

yep - a real eye opener!

But, knowing Lisa Renee, I'm sure there's no ulterior motive for not posting the link. She's rather liberal in many ways, but fiscally conservative in many others...
