Ohio Double Taxation on Property, Amendment 4 (1918)
The Ohio Double Taxation on Property Amendment, also known as Amendment 4, was on the November 5, 1918 ballot in Ohio as a legislatively-referred constitutional amendment, where it was approved. The measure allowed for laws against double taxation on property.
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 and was approved, Amendment 4 received a greater absolute value of votes. That meant that Amendment 4 became law, while Amendment 3 did not.
