NEWS:Appraisers from Ward & Associates, the County's contracted appraisal company, have begun reviewing properties in the County that have had buildings added or removed in the last year. This will continue, as the weather permits, until all changes have been reviewed. Appraisers will have proper identification. Changes listed this year will be used to establish property values for the 2018 Tax Year, which will lbe payable in 2019.
Please remember that the Ohio Revised Code requires that any new construction (including remodeling) must be reported to the Auditor's Office within sixty days of the start of construction. You can find the proper forms for reporting on the the Commonly Used Forms page, under Real Estate.
Any buildings removed during the 2018 calendar year must be reported by the end of the year for an adjustment to be made to the 2018 property value. The form for reporting destroyed buildings can also be found on the Commonly Used Forms page.
The Auditor's Office strives to be as fair and accurate as possible when appraising property. Timely reporting of any buildings added or removed helps us to achieve that goal.
