Thank you for your interest in your 2021 Triennial.
As Auditor, I am required by Ohio law to update real property values during the third year after a countywide reappraisal. This process is called the Triennial Update.
In the Triennial Update we review sales and do not actually view each property. The 2021 Triennial Update looks at sales from 2018, 2019 and 2020. After receiving a recommendation from the Ohio Department of Taxation and reviewing arm’s length sales, some areas will receive an adjustment in value.
The Triennial Value Update is a duty I deem important and our team takes seriously. As your County Auditor, I assure you every effort was made to ensure a fair, equitable, and accurate value is placed on your property.
Regarding your 2021 real estate tax bill, please keep the following in mind: 1) Your property taxes will not change in the exact dollar proportion to your percentage of value change. 2) Property taxes are primarily determined by the voters of Lucas County; newly-enacted levies directly affect your property taxes. 2021 property taxes will not be available until election results are certified by the Board of Election and tax rates are certified by the State of Ohio. 2021 property taxes will be available late in December.
