The Ohio Taxes Amendment was a constitutional convention-referred constitutional amendment on the September 3, 1912 special election ballot in Ohio, where it was approved.[1]


  • Part of the measure places 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.[2]
