With tax bills for the first half being sent out in a matter of weeks, the Office of Adams County Auditor David Gifford has updated 2024 tax payments due on the Auditor’s website. You can visit the Auditor’s website and now see your tax liability for the year by going to: adamscountyauditor.org. Many property owners in Adams County had a slight increase in their tax bills because of new voter-approved tax levies.
According to the Auditor and Treasurer, property in Ohio is appraised every six years, with an update at the three-year internal. The auditor’s office appraisers reviewed all properties in the county during the 2022 calendar year and the current tax bill shows the values set by the appraisers.
If you disagree with the value that has been placed on your property, you can file a complaint against the “Valuation of Real Property.” Your case would be heard by the local Board of Revision and if you do not get a satisfactory decision, you can appeal your property tax valuation with the State of Ohio Board of Tax Appeals.
Adams County residents are reminded that if you turn 65 of age or older anytime during 2024 or are totally and permanently disabled, you may qualify for the Homestead program. Contact the Auditor’s Office at 937-544-2364 if you have any questions.
