What happens if I pay my bill late?
According to Ohio Revised Code 323.17
up to a 10% penalty will be accessed to the amount currently due.
Interest is added if the full year amount is not paid by December of
that year. If payment is not made after one year the property is
subject to foreclosure.
Tax payments by mail must be post marked on the due date.
Can I arrange a payment plan to pay delinquent taxes?
Yes. Please call the treasurer's
office to set-up a contract to pay your delinquent taxes.
Bank Escrow Accounts
If your real estate taxes are paid by
the bank (escrowed) the bill will be sent directly to them. Remember
you are ultimately responsible for the payment of your taxes.
If you received the tax bill in error
please contact your escrow agent to correct the mailing address on
the tax bill. Ask your bank or escrow agent to request in writing a
change of mailing address from the treasurer’s office. This request
must be in writing.
How do I change my address?
The taxpayer is responsible to inform
the Treasurer’s office of any changes in your address by phone or
e-mail. Not receiving a bill does not relieve you of your
responsibility to pay your taxes. Tax bills are mailed during
January and June. If you
have not received a bill please contact the Treasurer’s office at
330-365-3254. If you escrow your payment with a bank the bill is
sent directly to the institution.
I think my taxes are too high. What can I do about it?
Property tax is calculated at 35% of
the Auditor’s market value.
If you feel that your property value is incorrect, contact
the County Auditor’s office at 330-365-3220 or email them at
email@example.com. To contest your property value you must
file a Board of Revision claim. The
complaint form must be filed with the county auditor between
January 1 and March 31. This claim gives you the opportunity to
present your reasoning for lowering your property value in front of
the Board of Revision consisting of the County Auditor, County
Commissioner and County Treasurer.
Can I contest my late payment penalty?
Why are real estate taxes collections one year behind?
You pay for the
time you own the property. This year is not applicable because you
have not owned the property all year. You pay
for the taxes for the year you lived in or owned the property.
