Re : Transfer of Ownership of Real Property
The Auditor’s office, in accordance with Ohio Revised Code 319.28, will cut off data entry as of October 26, 2016 for the 2017 tax year so that the October 31 statutory abstract date can be met. Due to this, the ownership for the current year will be changed as per legal instrument only if presented in our office ready to transfer by October 26, 2016 at 4 p.m. Any changes to the auditor’s real estate data for legal instruments presented after this date will be made for tax year 2017, payable in 2018.
The tax bills will be affected in a like manner. Real estate tax bills will be sent to new owners if the Auditor’s transfer was done by October 26. For any document presented for transfer later than this date, the owner’s name on the tax bill will remain in the prior owners’ names as certified on the tax list and duplicates. The Treasurer’s office will change only the mailing name and address for the current tax year if parcel is transferred in its entirety.
***Split parcels will be billed to the prior owner with the original acreage reflected and taxed.*** Please prorate taxes accordingly.
