Ohio Housing Trust Fund Collections

These are the funds raised every year from the Recorder's fee in Ohio.  When a property transfers the owner must pay for the cost of recording the transaction and the paperwork associated with the transfer.  The revenue is capped at $50 million which goes to the Ohio Housing Trust Fund.   There is a debate right now in Ohio to lift the cap and allow all the revenue from the fee to go to building, preserving and expanding affordable housing.
