A. Westerville City Schools covers 8 different tax districts across Franklin & Delaware Counties.  Each taxing district in the Westerville City School District pays the same school millage rate.  The voted millage rate is reduced to an effective millage rate due to House Bill 920.  Currently residents in the Westerville City School District pay an effective millage rate of  35.45.

B. The County Auditors offer some tools to show you where your taxes go:

 

In Franklin County:

1. Go to the Franklin County Auditor's Website to search by Parcel ID, Owner Name, or Street Address and enter your search criteria.

2. Under Parcel Info, click on Tax Distribution and you will see where your own tax money goes.

3. Under Parcel Info, click on Levy Info and you will get information on calculating specific levy amounts for your property.

 

In Delaware County:

1. Go to the Delaware County Auditor's Website at the bottom of the page, clink on the link which reads Start your Search. Enter your search criteria by Parcel ID, Owner Name, or Street Address.

2. On the Summary page, you can locate your Tax district to use with the table above to calculate where your taxes go.  Unfortunately, unlike Franklin County, the site will not calculate these amounts for you.  Also on the Summary tab, at the bottom of the page you can find your total amount of property tax for your property.

3.  By clicking on "Levy Info.," you will get information on calculating specific levy amounts for your property.  The March 2004 proposed School Levy is 5 mills.  As of February 6, 2004, the Delaware County Auditor's site has not been updated from the November levy which was 7.5 mills, so you will need to use the Tax Estimator to calculate the 5.0 mill monthly payment for your home.
