    Payment Of Real Estate Taxes

    Last Day Of Payment Of First Half 2016 

    Real Estate Tax Is Due

    Wednesday, February 15, 2017 

    Notice is hereby given that Real Estate Taxes for the First Half of 2016 are due and payable on or before Wednesday, February 15, 2017. Payments that are mailed must have a postmark of Wednesday, February 15, 2017 or before by the United States Postal Service only. Postmarks from private mailing machines are no longer acceptable. After February 15, 2017, a penalty must be charged in accordance with the Ohio Revised Code. In addition, interest is charged twice yearly on certified unpaid balances.

    When your mortgage is paid or if it is sold to another mortgage company, it is the property owner's responsibility under the Ohio Revised Code to see that this office is advised in order that the tax bill will be sent to the correct address.

    Every effort is made to see that you receive your tax bills; however, Section 323.13 of the Ohio Revised Code provides that the property owner is responsible for payments (plus any penalties and interest) even if you did not receive your bill. Please call us at once if you did not receive your bill or if you have any indication that your tax bill may have been misdirected.
