Regular dog license sales for 2020 tags ended January 31, 2020. Any purchase of dog licenses for existing dogs or dogs purchased more than 30 days ago will be subject to penalty. As of July 1st, 2020, licenses for new dogs - puppies three months old or less, or new dogs purchased within the last 30 days - will be half price for the remainder of the calendar year. Dogs more than 3 months old or owned for more than 30 days will be full price plus penalty.

Preliminary work has begun for the 2022 Reappraisal, which will be effective in the 2023 calendar year.  Appraisers will be visiting every property in the County to verify the information currently on file with the Auditor's Office. Appraisal work will be ongoing through the middle of 2022. Appraisers cannot answer questions about tax calculations, or how much your taxes will be in the next year. If you have questions about how any changes may impact your tax bill, please call the office.

As of July 2020, appraisers are working in Jackson Township and Bethel Township and will move into other areas of the County as those are completed. Appraisers will have identification badges, as well as signs on their vehicles.

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 2020 calendar year must be reported by the end of the year for an adjustment to be made to the 2020 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.
