In accordance with state law, the Logan County Auditor’s Office has tentatively completed a revaluation of more than 36,000 parcels of property in the county and submitted the results to the Ohio Department of Taxation.
Data from the process is used to set the fair market value for each parcel and then calculate the property taxes which will be collected in 2014.
Informal hearings are scheduled for Sept. 9-13 during regular business hours, 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Evening appointments can be made by calling 599-7209.
The sole purpose of the hearing is to discuss the tentative valuations, not any new taxes.
Logan County Auditor Michael E. Yoder explains the property tax on a parcel cannot be determined until after votes on new levies in the November election.
In general, Mr. Yoder says residential property values went down, while farmland values are up.
