What do mils on my tax bill mean?

Property taxes are charged as "mills." One mill is one-thousandth of a dollar - this equates to one-tenth of a cent, or $0.001. All Ohio residents pay a base tax rate of 10 mills. This base rate comes from the Ohio Constitution and is meant to provide all governmental units with a base amount of operating revenue.
