Lucas County Audito Anita Lopez will meet with the residents of Jerusalem Township Tuesday, March 8 at 7 p.m. to discuss the 2012 revaluation as well as the upcoming Board of Revision deadline of March 31. The meeting will take place at the Jerusalem Township Hall, located at 9501 Jerusalem Road, Curtice.
Auditor Lopez will inform residents about the upcoming property revaluation process, the owner’s role in the process, and the relationship between the Auditor’s office and property taxes.
State law requires the Auditor to appraise each individual parcel of real estate in the county every six years. Called a revaluation, the program is required by Ohio law to equalize values and to take into account the need to adjust values based on current trends in the market.
The Auditor’s office divides the county into 34 groups of similar neighborhoods and performs their own extensive sales analysis and compares their findings with the State.
