Clark County Auditor, John S. Federer, announced today that his office will be sending out the first of three waves of mailers to property owners this week which will contain important information about property values and the 2013 Property Reappraisal. “As your County Auditor, I am required by Ohio law to reappraise real property at its estimated fair market value once every six years” explained Mr. Federer. “This notice will outline the reappraisal process, address many frequently asked questions, and show property owners the “tentative” 2013 market value which has been determined for their properties.” The first wave is scheduled to be mailed on September 3rd followed by a second on September 16th and the final mailing on September 27th. “Please don’t disregard this as junk mail,” urged Mr. Federer. “It’s extremely important that you review the information contained in this notification. The reappraisal of property for tax purposes is an important and sensitive issue. I want to assure you that every effort has been made to ensure that fair and accurate values have been placed on your property.”
After reviewing the information should property owners have questions or concerns, they are urged to call the Auditor’s Office for an appointment to discuss their tentative values with a staff member. These appointments will be made during the Open Book Period from September 25th to October 25th and will be scheduled in various locations throughout the County including WorkPlus of Clark County, Springview Government Center, Enon Library and New Carlisle Library. Those property owners requesting an appointment will be asked to provide supportive documentation.
The Auditor has been making presentations to groups throughout the County to educate constituents on the reappraisal process and to answer questions.
