Every year, Ohio counties assess a property’s real estate taxes based on the market value the county places upon the property. However, the county's assessed value does not always accurately reflect the property’s true market value.
Ohio law gives property owners the right to challenge the value the county has placed upon their property if they feel it is in excess of the true market value by filing a complaint against the property's value with the county auditor. That complaint must be submitted by March 31, 2016.
If you believe your property is not valued correctly, please contact our office to discuss whether it is in your best interest to file such a complaint, keeping in mind the deadline of March 31, 2016.
