The Greene County Auditor’s Office has launched a new online tool that will calculate how a new levy would impact property taxes.

The tax calculator is available to property owners ahead of a series of levies that will appear in the May 7 ballot.

Homeowners will be able to search for their property on the auditor’s website and see current taxes as well as what taxes could be if a proposed levy is passed, according to Greene County Auditor David Graham.

“They would see what the current cost of the levy is, if it exists … and then what the estimated cost is if the levy passes,” Graham said. “It'll also show the purpose of the levy, who has the levy on, the number of years the levy runs and the tax year it becomes effective.”

Beavercreek schools has two levies on the May 7 ballot, a new 6.15-mill operating levy and a renewal on a permanent improvement levy.
