Hamilton County homeowners will get a break on their property taxes next year, but it won't be the full 30% rebate they may have wanted.
The Hamilton County Commissioners voted for a 10.5% property tax rollback Thursday afternoon, which is roughly $32 for every $100,000 in home value.
The money is less than what voters were promised after approving the half-penny riverfront sales tax in 1996. That sales tax helped fund new stadiums for the Bengals and the Reds. According to County Administrator Jeff Alutto, in the years following its passage, the county was able to meet the 30% rebate.
