Clark County Auditor John S. Federer announced that the 2016 Clark County Dog Tags will go on sale beginning December 1, 2015 through February 1, 2016. Again this year, three-year or permanent (lifetime of dog) licenses are available for dog(s) in addition to the traditional one-year license. The fee for the one-year tag is $20.00, $60.00 for the three-year tag, and the permanent tag is $200.00.
“Please consider taking advantage of the convenient, hassle-free option of purchasing or renewing dog tags on-line AND be sure to upload a picture of your dog” said Auditor Federer. “Remember that licensing is so important in helping to reunite lost pets with their owners.” Simply access the Auditor’s website at www.clarkcountyauditor.org and then click on “2016 Dog License”. You will then be directed to a link to complete either a new or renewal registration and purchase your tag(s) via a secure site.
Owners may also mail in their application, along with the proper fee and a self-addressed stamped envelope to: John S. Federer, Clark County Auditor, P. O. Box 1325, Springfield 45501-1325 or they may purchase their tags in person at the Clark County Auditor’s Office, 31 N. Limestone Street, Springfield or at other remote locations.

All dogs over three months old and that have been owned for more than 30 days are required to be licensed per the State of Ohio. Tags purchased after February 1, 2016 will be subject to a penalty.
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”.
