November 24, 2021 – Dog Tag Poster Winners News Release

     Chris Sycks, Coshocton County Auditor, is pleased to announce the winners of the 5th Annual Dog Tag Poster Contest.  Congratulations to Peyton Hunt, a 1st Grader at Ridgewood Elementary, and Kelly Corbett, a 5th Grader at Sacred Heart School, who won in their respective age groups.  Each received $10 plus a bowl, treats, and a toy for their dogs, Wilson Hunt and Roxie Corbett.  Copies of the winning posters will be displayed at points of sale for the upcoming 2022 dog tag season.  All 260 poster entries received will be displayed in Annex Windows at 349 Main Street during January.  No public funds were used for prizes, as all of the gifts were purchased by Sycks.

     The Dog Tag Poster Contest was created by Auditor Sycks to help promote community awareness of dog licensing.  One of the responsibilities of the Auditor is to license all dogs in the county.  As per Ohio Revised Code, 2022 dog tags will be sold with no penalty beginning on December 1st and going through the 31st of January.  By law, any person who has a dog on his or her property needs to register it with the County Auditor or one of her agents (for an extra $.75 convenience fee) and purchase a tag.  Dogs must be registered in the county in which the owner resides.  The cost is $12 for a 1-year, $36 for a 3-year, and $120 for a lifetime tag.  Non-high-volume Kennel Licenses are $60 and are available at the Auditor’s Office.

     For owners of previously registered dogs, reminder letters will be going out by mail soon.  Tags are required regardless of whether you receive a letter, whether the dog is an indoor or outdoor dog, or whether you are ‘just keeping’ a dog for somebody else.  Penalties double the price of tags if they are purchased after January 31, 2022.

      Visit for licensing details and satellite sales point locations.  Tags can also be purchased online at for an extra $2.15 convenience fee.  Follow the Coshocton County Auditor’s Office on Facebook for updates and reminders.  Remember – if your dog gets lost, the tag is its ticket home!

August 20, 2021 – 2021 Property Valuation Notices Released


Coshocton County Auditor Christine Sycks announced the completion of property revaluations for the county-wide reappraisal and will be sending notices to homeowners and property owners at the end of next week.  Every taxpayer with a good mailing address on file should be receiving an envelope marked with “2021 REAPPRAISAL VALUE NOTIFICATION ENCLOSED”.  All property records are now available for public inspection.  Any person can view his or her new values in our office or online at  

Ohio Law requires all properties to be appraised once every six years in order for the taxes to be shared fairly and equitably among all citizens.  The reappraisal team that performed this task will be available for informal reviews, either by phone or walk-ins at the County Auditor’s Office (349 Main Street, Coshocton (740) 622-1243) on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday the week of September 20th, and on Tuesday and Thursday the week of September 27th.  For your convenience, a limited number of evening appointments will be available until 6:45 p.m. on Wednesday, September 22nd.  Please call anytime during regular office hours to reserve an evening appointment.  Informal complaints will be considered and adjustments made, if warranted.  This process is an effort to help all property owners who have questions about their valuation or seek record correction if they believe errors have been made.  The staff will not be able to estimate new taxes in this process and are only addressing values as 2021 tax rates are not yet available for calculation.

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?

The County Auditor also explained the appeals process to help property owners with any questions or concerns about their valuation. “Property owners can appeal to us informally or formally,” said Sycks. “The informal reviews in September allow you to meet with the appraiser and correct any mistakes or raise any questions.  Property owners also have a formal appeal route that can serve their needs. Either avenue leads to fair play for property owners.”   The formal appeal period runs between the first of January and the end of March.  The appeal process only addresses the values.  The tax amount levied is not appealable because they have been approved by the voters.

“I want to continue my practice of making local government accountable, accessible and reliable,” Sycks continued.  “Our appeals process will treat property owners with professionalism, respect and fairness. Serving the public while complying with state laws is our job.”

August 14, 2019 – 2021 Reappraisal Begins


2021 County-Wide Reappraisal Begins

     Coshocton County Auditor Christine Sycks announced that the next County-wide Reappraisal for Coshocton County will be for tax year 2021, payable in 2022.  Work on this project has already begun.  One of the statutory duties of the County Auditor is to ensure that all properties are assessed with a fair market value for tax purposes.  “Ohio Law and the Ohio Department of Taxation require county auditor’s office to view and appraise every parcel of real estate at least once every six years,” said Sycks.  “This requires our office to view, collect and enter property information that contributes to the property’s value.” 

     A contract has been signed with John G. Cleminshaw, Inc., out of Stow, Ohio, to do the reappraisal work, alongside Jarrod Tipton, County Chief Appraiser, and Dustin Gregory, County Appraiser.  Every parcel in the county will be viewed physically, throughout the two-year process. 

     Appraisers are already out gathering data on every parcel.  They have started in the City of Coshocton and will be there for a month or two before moving on to the rural areas of the county.  They will all have identification on their person and in the windows of their vehicles, which are a grey Honda CRV and a white Buick Century.      

     In early fall, there will also be mailers sent out to all dwelling owners asking for characteristics, such as number of bathrooms, type of heat, etc., of the home.  This is to assure our records are accurate, as the appraisers only enter a home if they are invited.

     Homeowners can visit the auditor’s web site for answers to view the status of the project and other pertinent information.  To learn more about the reappraisal process, please visit the County Auditor’s website at and click on the 2021 Reappraisal tab.  Periodic updates will also be shared on the Coshocton County Auditor’s Office Facebook page.

July 16, 2019 – Weather-damaged properties could be eligible for tax relief.

Weather-damaged properties could be eligible for tax relief

Property owners of a home or business that has been damaged by recent flooding or storms, may be eligible to receive a reduction on their annual real estate tax.  Because of the extensive damage experienced by our friends in the West Lafayette area, Coshocton County Auditor Chris Sycks will be providing on-site assistance on Tuesday, July 23rd between the hours of 3:30 p.m. and 5:30 p.m.  During this time, Sycks, along with staff appraisers and a notary public, will be at the West Lafayette Village Council Chambers, 115 East Railroad Street, to answer questions and help file the necessary forms. 

Auditor Sycks states that state law authorizes County Auditors to reduce real estate values for properties that have been damaged or destroyed. A substantial reduction in property value may result in lower real estate taxes for the property until it has been essentially restored to its prior condition or value.  Real estate tax bills for tax year 2019 (payable 2020) will reflect the reduction and records will not increase back to full value until the property is restored.

Property value reductions can be applied to real property – including manufactured homes. Personal property such as furniture and personal belongings that have been destroyed are not included.   Manufactured home taxes are paid current year, so the bills just mailed and paid would be adjusted and any overpayments refunded.

“We would like to hear from citizens who have unfortunately suffered structural damage to their property from recent storms,” said Auditor Sycks, “so that we may update our information and allow them to take advantage of tax relief.”

The application deadline for any property damage or destruction occurring since January 1, 2019 is December 31, 2019 for real estate and January 31, 2020 for manufactured homes taxed apart from land.    

Property owners can receive additional information or request a form to be mailed to them by calling the Coshocton County Auditor’s Office at 740-622-1243.  Applications for a property value reduction and additional information are also available on the County Auditor’s web site at


Damage that occurred during this summer’s storms should be reported by December 31, 2019 to receive the full tax adjustment allowable.
