Latest News


Clark County Auditor John S. Federer announced that the 2019 Clark County Dog Tags will go on sale beginning December 1, 2018 through January 31, 2019.  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 “2019 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.  Please see the Auditor’s website for a listing of 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 January 31, 2019 will be subject to a $20.00 penalty per tag.  Therefore, please purchase your tag(s) prior to January 31, 2019.


Clark County Auditor, John S. Federer, is announcing that once again he has authorized a release of $1,000,063.94 from the Auditor’s “Real Estate Assessment (REA) Fund” to the various taxing authorities within Clark County.  He authorized a similar release of funds in 2014 and is once again authorizing the release of funds in 2018. Auditor Federer is very pleased to be able to approve these funds twice in his tenure as Clark County’s Auditor.

The REA Fund is a special restricted fund maintained on the Auditor’s books to help defray the expenses associated with the appraisal of properties and the related assessment of taxes.  The REA account receives its funding by deducting a small percentage, per the Ohio Revised Code, of property taxes from settlements to local schools, townships, municipalities, ambulance districts, etc.

In all, 35 taxing entities will receive funds.  The amount to be received by each entity was calculated on a pro-rata basis based upon the amount of taxes collected on behalf of each taxing authority for the collection years of 2015 through 2017.

Auditor Federer credits, in large part, the furthering of efficiencies in the Auditor’s office for the ability to be able to issue these funds back to our local taxing entities within Clark County.  “The Auditor’s Office has continued to research and adopt best practices and technologies that have yielded cost saving measures.  I’m proud of the accomplishments in this office over the last seven plus years “, Federer says.

In a letter to the leaders of the various taxing authorities, Federer thanked those entities for their cooperation over the years with the Auditor’s Office, and also the employees of the Auditor’s Office for their unfailing and ongoing efforts to keep costs under control.  Auditor Federer is confident that those efficiencies played a large part in making this release of funds possible.
