If you pay your taxes through an escrow account, you may receive a tax bill if we have not been notified by your bank. It is your responsibility to forward your tax bill to your mortgage company.
Change Your Address
Ohio Law (Section 323.13, Ohio Revised Code) requires that any mailing address change (PDF) for property tax bills be made in writing to the County Treasurer. Please keep the Treasurer’s office advised when you move or desire your tax bill to go to a different address. This information can be mailed or emailed to our office.
