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 soon which will contain important information about property value and the 2019 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 2019 market value which has been determined for their properties.”  The first wave is scheduled to be mailed on September 6th followed by a second on September 13th and the final mailing will be on September 30th.  “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 may 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 23rd to October 2nd.  Those property owners requesting an appointment will be asked to provide supportive documentation.


The Auditor will be making presentations to groups throughout the County to educate constituents on the reappraisal process and to answer questions.  For additional information, please visit the Auditor’s website at www.clarkcountyauditor.org  on Facebook at ‘Clark County Auditor’ or you may call the Auditor’s Office at (937) 521-1878.
