Per section 323.12(B) of the Ohio Revised Code, a private meter postmark on an envelope is not a valid postmark for purposes of establishing the date of payment.

Legal Action: If the taxes are not paid within sixty days after the Auditor delivers the delinquent manufactured home tax list to the Treasurer, you and your home may be subject to collection proceedings for tax delinquency.

Homestead Exemption

The homestead exemption allows low-income senior citizens and permanently and totally disabled Ohioans, to reduce their property tax bills, by shielding some of the market value of their homes from taxation. The exemption, which takes the form of a credit on property tax bills, allows qualifying homeowners to exempt up to $25,000 of the market value of their homes from all local property taxes. For example, through the homestead exemption, a home with a market value of $100,000 is billed as if it is worth $75,000.  The tax exemption is limited to the homestead, which Ohio law defines as an owner’s dwelling and up to one acre of land. The value of the exemption may not exceed the value of the homestead. The 2021 threshold is $34,200.  For more information, please visit the County Auditor's website
