WILMINGTON — Clinton County Auditor Terence Habermehl has announced that the Ohio Department of Taxation has approved the new real estate values established for the state-ordered 2017 revaluation of real property and they are now available for review.
The new property values can be found on the auditor’s website at: http://clintonoh.ddti.net/Search.aspx or by calling the auditor’s office at 937-382-2250 from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday, and 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Wednesday.
Ohio law requires that a revaluation take place every six years to review each property in the county and make adjustments based on market activity to ensure fair and equitable values. The economic and market conditions have steadily increased since the last update, and have been reflected in the market values established during the 2017 revaluation.
New property values are established as of Jan. 1, 2017 in accordance with Ohio law. Taxes are paid one year in arrears, therefore, tax bills payable in calendar year 2018 will be based on the new property valuations.
Habermehl noted that the state will not set new tax rates until the end of December. Therefore, at this time, it is impossible to estimate a property’s new real estate taxes.
For residential properties, Habermehl is offering both an online and in-person Informal Value Review to provide taxpayers the opportunity to review and have questions answered regarding their new property valuation.
An online Informal Value Review will be available Oct. 4 through Nov. 3 and can be found at http://Clintoncounty.propertyrevaluations.com. This site will provide frequently asked questions and a response form to ask questions or share concerns about a property’s valuation.
Appraisal staff will be available for Informal Value Review in the Community Room of the Wilmington Municipal Building, 69 N. South St., Wilmington, on Wednesday, Oct. 11 from noon to 8 p.m. and at the County Annex, 11 S. Nelson Ave., Wilmington, on Thursday, Oct. 12 from noon to 8 p.m.
