Dear Property Owner,
As County Auditor, I am required by Ohio law, under the supervision of the Ohio Department of Taxation, to update taxable real estate values to reflect current sales trends three years after a Reappraisal. Auditor’s must reappraise each parcel of property every six years, referred to as the “Reappraisal,” and update the information every three years known as the “Triennial Update”.
The State of Ohio directs my office when to do the appraisals as well as how to establish values based on current market trends. Property sales over the past three years driven by a short supply of housing and higher new construction costs are inflating a sales market that is influencing values for the 2023 Triennial Update. These values do not reflect any Current Agricultural Use Valuation (CAUV) values for 2023, as they will not be available until later in the year. While there are variances in the methodology used by the state and the Auditor’s office, it is important to know that the Department of Taxation ultimately decides your value.
It is important to remember that a change in the value of your property is not proportional to tax changes. An increase or decrease in appraised value does not equate to a dollar for dollar increase or decrease in taxes.
Many of your questions may be answered in the details provided on our website ClermontAuditor.org. We encourage you to review your property details and see our Triennial Update page for frequently asked questions, along with links to interactive charts and maps and viewing property value changes by neighborhood using our sales and value map tool.
You always have the opportunity to question your value and are welcome to contact us with your concerns. We will be conducting informal sessions through October 6, 2023. Please direct questions to us at Reappraisal@clermontcountyohio.gov or call us at 513-732-7150.
Our goal is to provide Clermont County residents with courteous, accurate and efficient services and to administer property tax laws in a fair and impartial manner. I, along with my staff, am proud to serve the residents of our county and look forward to addressing any questions you may have regarding your property value.
