2020 Property Revaluation

  • Ohio law requires that all County Auditors conduct a county wide reappraisal every six years. Ashtabula County’s last reappraisal was effective for tax year 2014, collection year 2015. The process has now begun for the next reappraisal which will be effective for tax year 2020, collection year 2021.
  • The lengthy reappraisal process involves a physical viewing of each property to ensure as much accuracy as possible in regard to placing a fair market value on a property. “With nearly 80,000 parcels in Ashtabula County, this is a huge project and one which greatly benefits our county”, shared Auditor David Thomas. Appraisers may personally visit individual properties to update and verify data but will visually look at every parcel.
  • The Auditor has contracted with Integrity Appraisal Services of Youngstown, Ohio to perform the appraisal of all properties. Before Integrity canvases a neighborhood, the Auditor’s Office will contact local authorities and entities to inform them of the vehicles and personnel. All vehicles will be specially marked as well as individuals having Auditor identification.
  • The appraisers will be inspecting outside of properties to ensure condition and property structures. Appraisers may knock on your door to ask questions or to check changes in structures.
