The NEW & IMPROVED Real Estate Property search is now available! Please click on the Real Estate Inquiry link at the left. This search includes all Auditor's and Treasurer's data, including property notes, tax status and history, and a tax estimator feature.

The Auditor's Office yearly inspection of new and ongoing construction and destoyed properties is under way. Any appraisers doing these inspections will have identification. 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 will impact your tax bill, please call the office.

2018 Tax Year second half tax bills will mail around the beginning of June, and will be due on July 19th. Please go to the Treasurer's page for more information.

2019 will be the triennial update year for property values. This means that the Department of Taxation will be analyzing all property sales in the county in the last three years to see how our appraised values compare with actual selling prices. They may request an adjustment in property values if they feel one is warranted. We will receive more information about this around mid-year.

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 2019 calendar year must be reported by the end of the year for an adjustment to be made to the 2019 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.
