The Ohio Taxes Amendment, also known as Amendment 32, was on the September 3, 1912 ballot in Ohio as a constitutional convention referral, where it was approved. The measure related to the taxation of state and municipal bonds, inheritances, franchises and production of minerals.[1][2][3]


Part of the measure placed taxes on public bonds. Bond sellers fought back against this, and local governments began having difficulty issuing bonds. The state legislature sought to correct the issue with an amendment in 1913. However, the amendment failed to be approved by voters.[4]
