This search includes all Auditor's and Treasurer's data, including property notes, tax status and history, and a tax estimator feature. We have also added a tutorial that explains how to use the inquiry. Just click on the Real Estate Inquiry Instructions sub-option when it appears to the right of the link.

Yearly dog license sales for 2021 will begin on December 1, 2020. You will have from then until January 31, 2021 to purchase dog tags at the regular tag price.  New dogs purchased more than 30 days before December 1st, or which will be 3 months old before December 1st, will still need a half price dog tag for the remainder of 2020. Dogs not tagged for the 2020 calendar year will be required to have 2020 tags before 2021 tags can be purchased.

Preliminary work remains in progress 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 November 2020, appraisers are working in Summit Township and will move into other areas of the County as it is completed. Appraisers will have identification badges, as well as signs on their vehicles. (Please note that appraisers may also be in other areas of the County working on yearly new construction and destroyed building appraisals at the same time that reappraisal is taking place.)

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.
