Franklin County Tax Assessment

Wednesday, January 5th, 2011
Ohio Residential Appraisal Services 

Attention Franklin County Residents…Your real estate tax bills will be mailed in mid-December!

If you believe the market value of your home is less than the county auditors total assessed value, you have the right to dispute your tax assessment. Last tax year, a 3 member board processed more than 65000 dispute applications. Don’t miss out on the opportunity this year to ensure your assessment is accurate. Typical resolution time of a tax appeal may be up to 6 months. A current real estate appraisal of your home can expedite the process. We can not only provide an appraisal, but will also help guide you through the appeals process. The Buckeye Appraisal Service staff has over 45 years experience conducting Real estate Appraisals in the state of Ohio with an A+ Better business bureau rating.The Columbus Board of Realtors reports the average market sales price has decreased by $22,318 since 2006 (as of September, 2009). 

Appeal applications are only accepted from December (after the tax bill is mailed) through March 31.
