After tax bills have been mailed, the reappraisal team that performed this task will be available for informal reviews, at the County Auditor’s Office.  Informal complaints will be considered and adjustments made, if warranted.  

Normally you could just come into the office and meet with the appraiser.  However, due to the Covid-19 protocols in place, you must submit a request  for an informal review in order to receive a phone call or in-person appointment time with the Appraisal Team or Auditor staff.

The appraisal team will be available for certain days between January 10, 2022 through February 25, 2022 for informal reviews. 

Is Your Real Estate Property Value Accurate?

Some of the questions to consider are:

  • Would you sell your home for the current appraised value of the property?
  • Did we miss something when your home was reviewed that might change your valuation?

Auditor Responsibilities 

As your County Auditor, I am responsible for a wide variety of duties that affect every resident of the County.  Ohio law places more fiscal responsibility upon the County Auditor than upon any other County Official.

As Tax Assessor, I am responsible for determining the value of all real property in Guernsey County for tax purposes.  Every six years the Auditor must conduct a full reappraisal of real property, and every three years, an update of real property values is required.  Tax credits are also maintained in my office, including Owner Occupied Credit, Non-Business Credit and the Homestead Exemption.  We also are responsible for the valuation of farm land and the administration of the Current Agricultural Use Value program (CAUV).
