Lake County Treasurer’s Office Reports Record First-Half Property Tax Collection

PAINESVILLE, Ohio, March 3, 2023– The Lake County Treasurer’s office first-half property tax collection exceeded approximately $256 million dollars. The collection surpassed last year’s first-half collection by over $7 million. Considering the County has not changed property valuations since the last collection period and there were few new levies passed since 2022, the increase in the collection is attributed to many internal factors.

The Treasurer’s office implemented new procedures in 2022 such as upgrading online payment options including the use of QR Codes. (A user-friendly online payment platform is in the works). Treasurer Michael Zuren and Auditor Christopher Galloway offered free presentations at senior centers and libraries discussing tax reduction programs, grant programs and escrow payment options. Please click here to read the entire press release.
