AUDITOR ANNOUNCES FIRST PHASE OF REAPPRAISAL PROJECT

August 8th, 2017 Posted by Uncategorized 0 comments on “AUDITOR ANNOUNCES FIRST PHASE OF REAPPRAISAL PROJECT”

Auditor John S. Federer wishes to inform the citizens and taxpayers of Clark County that the first phase of the 2019 Real Property Reappraisal project is underway.   The County has contracted with Tyler Technologies, Inc. of Dayton, Ohio to provide detailed, high resolution street level images.  In this first phase, Tyler Technologies’ field staff will photograph properties from customized white vans that will be clearly marked with signs indicating that they are conducting an imaging project for the County.  This imaging project will begin the week of April 10th.

 

“The goals of the County are to build upon the current records developed from the 2013 reappraisal and continue to ensure that we have fair and accurate real estate values in place for Clark County taxpayers,” explains Auditor Federer.  He further explains, “This phase allows our office to capture any changes that have occurred to properties since the previous reappraisal so that we continue to refine the data on file.”  To that end, if there have been any changes to property that you own, the Auditor’s office should be made aware of that so that the property is reflected accurately.

 

The second phase will include a review of individual parcels for valuation.  This phase will commence after the street level imaging is complete.  The entire process will be finished by November, 2019.

 

“I want to thank the community for their participation and diligence in assisting us with this important process.  As your Auditor, I consider it a privilege to continue to work on behalf of the Clark County taxpayers to maintain fair and accurate property values throughout the County”, says Federer.  As always, if there are any questions, please contact the Auditor’s office at 937-521-1878.

Clark County Auditor Continues to Refine Fair and Accurate Real Estate Taxes

August 26th, 2016 Posted by Uncategorized 0 comments on “Clark County Auditor Continues to Refine Fair and Accurate Real Estate Taxes”

This year, 2016, is the Triennial Appraisal Update which is required for Clark County. As Auditor John S. Federer explains, “This is not a total reevaluation whereby the Auditor examines every parcel in each part of the county. Rather, a triennial update is a review of neighborhood values based upon actual sales over the prior three years. This project has been in process since February of this year, and values will be updated for both agricultural and residential properties throughout Clark County.”

The Auditor is announcing an “Open Book” session being conducted from September 12 through October 14. During this time, property owners will be able to obtain information regarding their values by stopping in the Auditor’s Office at 31 N. Limestone Street, Springfield, Monday through Friday, from 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., or by calling (937) 521-1878.

“My staff and I have worked very hard to ensure that property values are fair and accurate for all taxpayers in Clark County,” said Auditor Federer. Updated values will be reflected in the January 2017 tax bills.

July 14th, 2014 Posted by Uncategorized 0 comments on “County Auditor Pleased to Announce Tax Relief for Disabled Veterans”

Clark County Auditor John S. Federer announced today that Ohio Legislators approved Amended Substitute House Bill 85.  The bill regarding Disabled Veterans’ Homestead Exemption was signed by the Governor on June 12, 2014 and enhances the exemption for military veterans who are 100% disabled from a service-connected disability.

BILL SUMMARY:

  •  H.B 85 Increases the homestead exemption amount from $25,000 to $50,000 to qualified disabled veterans.
  • The bill also exempts disabled veterans from the newly established income limit.
  • If a disabled veteran dies while receiving the exemption, the exemption continues for the homestead if a surviving spouse acquires ownership of the homestead and resides there. No age restriction is placed on surviving spouses. The exemption continues through the year in which the surviving spouse dies, ceases to own or occupy the homestead, or remarries.
  • Homeowners would first receive the exemption for tax year 2014 (or tax year 2015 for manufactured homes)

ELIGIBILITY:

To receive the increased exemption under the bill, a homeowner must be a veteran of the armed forces of the United States, including reserve components thereof, or of the national guard, who has received a permanent total disability rating or a total disability rating for a service-connected disability or combination of service-connected disabilities for which the schedule for rating disabilities in Schedule 38, Part 4 of the Code of Federal Regulations, as amended, prescribes a 100% evaluation. When applying for the exemption, the veteran must provide written confirmation of the disability from the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs.

WHEN TO FILE:

The application with appropriate paperwork should be filed with the County Auditor between January 6, 2015 and June 1, 2015.

“We are extremely grateful for the sacrifices made by these brave men and women,” said Federer.  Please visit our website at: www.clarkcountyauditor.org for updated information as it becomes available.
