3377.12 Tax exemption.

Any real or personal property, or both, of the Ohio higher educational facility commission which is acquired, constructed, reconstructed, enlarged, improved, furnished, or equipped, or any combination thereof, and leased under authority of Chapter 3377. of the Revised Code is subject to or exempt from ad valorem, sales, use and franchise taxes and to zoning, planning, and building regulations and fees, to the same extent and in the same manner as if the lessee-user thereof, rather than the commission, had acquired, constructed, reconstructed, enlarged, improved, furnished, or equipped, or any combination thereof, such real or personal property, and title thereto was in the name of such lessee-user. For purposes of sections 5709.07 and 5709.12 of the Revised Code, such property shall be deemed to be the property of, to belong to, and to be connected with the educational institution which is the lessee-user, and not as being a leasehold estate, nor as being used with a view to profit by reason of the lease from the commission or by reason of the charges made for or the rental or other payments to the commission or otherwise required under the lease. The transfer of tangible personal property by lease under authority of Chapter 3377. of the Revised Code is not a sale as used in Chapter 5739. of the Revised Code. The commission is exempt from all taxes on its real or personal property, or both, which has been acquired, constructed, reconstructed, enlarged, improved, furnished, or equipped, or any combination thereof, under Chapter 3377. of the Revised Code, so long as such property is used by the commission for purposes which would exempt such property; has ceased to be used by a former lessee user and is not occupied or used; or has been acquired by the commission, but development has not yet commenced. The exemption shall be effective as of the date the exempt use begins. All taxes on the exempt real or personal property for the year shall be prorated and the taxes for the exempt portion of the year shall be remitted by the county auditor.
