Taxes
Genoa Township receives the majority of its revenue funding from property taxes assessed by the Delaware County Auditor and collected by the Delaware County Treasurer.

Genoa Township does not collect income tax. Speak to a tax professional regarding Ohio HB 110 "work from home" refunds for income tax withheld by the principal place of work municipality for tax year 2021.
 
The Township is divided into three primary taxing districts corresponding to the three school districts located in Genoa. Unlike various municipalities and school districts in Ohio, townships are not statutorily permitted to enact an income tax.
 
For 2021, Genoa Township’s combined effective tax millage rate before the calculation of any property tax credits was $15.68 per $1,000 of assessed property tax valuation (not market valuation).

Residents passed a replacement and increase Roads & Bridges Levy in November 2019 and a ten-year bond levy to construct a new police station in November 2018.  Learn more about each levy  www.GenoaTwp.com/RoadLevy  and www.GenoaTwp.com/PoliceStation.
