Special Instructions for Tax Increment Financing Exemptions
If the applicant requests an exemption under Ohio Revised Code (R.C.) 725.02, 1728.10, 5709.40, 5709.41, 5709.73 or
5709.78, the application can be signed by the property owner, the property owner’s representative, the political subdivi-
sion without the property owner’s consent, or the political subdivision with the property owner’s consent acting under
a power of attorney (attach DTE form 24P). If the application is signed by the political subdivision without the property
owner’s consent, such exemption shall be subordinate to an exemption granted under any other section of the Revised
Code and service payments shall not be required for the portion of the property exempt under that other section. If the
exemption requested involves service payments in lieu of taxes and the application is signed by the property owner, the
property owner’s representative, or the political subdivision with the property owner’s consent acting under a power of
attorney, those payments will remain in eect for the term of the exemption even if the property is used later for another
exempt purpose, unless the political subdivision consents in writing to the subsequent exemption. These service pay-
ments are also binding on future owners if the political subdivision or the property owner les a notice with the county
recorder after the tax commissioner approves the application, unless the political subdivision consents in writing to the
subsequent exemption. Failure to le such notice relieves only future owners from the obligation to make service pay-
ments if the property becomes exempt under any other provision of the Revised Code. Consent by a property owner
led with the tax commissioner after the commissioner has approved an application for exemption originally led by
the political subdivision without the property owner’s consent will trigger the same procedures mentioned above for an
application led by or with the property owner’s consent.
