The Ohio Department of Taxation has recommended a 37% average increase in residential property values and a 13% average increase in commercial property values for our 2023 property value update.
Property owners can expect the countywide average increases to be close to the State’s recommendations because the Tax Commissioner will typically reject proposed values that are not in-line with their request.
It’s the responsibility of the Department of Taxation to standardize property values from county to county, which is why they perform their own analysis and provide recommended value changes that county auditors must meet.
It’s our responsibility as the Auditor’s Office to make sure our values are fair and equitable in each community and each neighborhood. We perform our own, more detailed analysis, and determine how much to adjust property values in each neighborhood based on recent sales prices in each neighborhood.
Other counties in Ohio also received recommendations from the State for robust residential property value increases this year, most between 32-43%.
