The Ohio Classification of Property for Tax Purposes Amendment, also known as Amendment 3, was on the November 5, 1918 ballot in Ohio as an initiated constitutional amendment, where it was approved, though it was later overturned. This amendment sought to modify the Ohio Constitution to provide that the General Assembly classify property for taxation purposes.[1]

Aftermath

In the court case State ex rel. v Fulton (99 O.S. 168), it was decided that the provisions of Amendment 3 conflicted with the provisions of Amendment 4. Although Amendment 3 received a majority of votes, Amendment 4 received a greater absolute value of votes. That meant that Amendment 4 became law, while Amendment 3 did not.[1]
