Ohio Supreme Court Rules Developer Impact Fees Illegal

The Supreme Court of neighboring state Ohio ruled 7-0 that developer impact fees (fees charged by a township in order to cover the costs of infrastructure, fire, police services, etc.) are illegal. The ruling is essentially that these fees are really taxes and have to follow the same rules and limitations as other taxes.
