Auditor John Federer announced today that beginning December 1, dog owners will have the option to purchase their 2013 dog tags on-line.
The tags may be purchased by going to the Auditor’s website at http://clarkcounty.dogtaglicense.com/. The fee for the basic tag is $20.00 plus an on-line convenience fee and associated postage. Dog tags of various other shapes are also available through the website. Kennel owners may also renew their kennel licenses on-line ($100.00 plus convenience fee and postage). Owners will receive their tags via return mail within approximately 14 days. Additionally, owners utilizing this option may sign-up for annual email notifications to renew the license.
“We pride ourselves on the ability to offer this cost-saving and convenient option to our County’s pet owners,” Federer said. “It will save time, gas and may eliminate the inconvenience of standing in a long line while waiting to purchase a dog tag. We are excited to introduce this technology to Clark County.”
Dog tags will be available for sale from December 1 – January 31 without a penalty. Unless it is for a newly acquired dog, tags purchased February 1 or after will be subject to a late fee. All dogs over three months old and that have been owned for more than 30 days are required to be licensed by the State of Ohio.
Owners may also purchase their tags in person at the Clark County Auditor’s Office, 31 N. Limestone Street, Springfield, or at other remote locations. Please see the Auditor’s website for a listing of locations. For information, please contact the Auditor’s Office at (937) 521-1864.
Clark County Auditor has announced that property owners wishing to challenge their property’s value have until Monday April 2nd to file an appeal with the Auditor’s office. Petitioning property owners will receive at least a twenty day notice of their scheduled hearing. The Board of Revision adjusts values not tax dollars. The Board of Revision has three members; the County Auditor, the County Treasurer and the President of the County Commissioners or their designees. To contest your valuation you must file a complaint form at the County Auditor’s office, with the Board of Revision, between January 1 and April 2 of the current year. Complaint forms and information packets can be obtained in the Auditor’s Office at 31 N Limestone at the AB Graham Building or by calling (937) 521-1878.
Auditor John Federer is personally working to deliver on the promise of “fair and accurate” real estate values for each real property owner in Clark County. “In my few weeks as your Auditor, it is apparent that the data that supports your property needs to be reviewed for its’ accuracy when compared to our records,” Federer said.
The purpose of this community-wide public request is to ask each property owner to complete an updated “Dwelling Information Card”.
