The values on soil types are determined by the Ohio Department of Taxation and given to all counties in the State of Ohio. The CAUV soil rates are updated every 3 years. An update occurred in Tax Year 2023, collected in 2024. The next update will be for Tax Year 2026 collected in 2027. You cannot protest the CAUV values. You do have the option to appeal your property’s market value by filing a Board of Revision Complaint Against the Valuation of Property.
The primary purpose of a revaluation is to provide equalization between all property owners as well as between all classes of property. Ohio law requires a revaluation to be completed every six years. Please visit the Reappraisal page for more information.
Under the direction of the Ohio Department of Taxation, the Mahoning County Auditor must review and reappraise all property in Mahoning County every six year even if you did not improve or sell your property. The objective is to appraise all properties at Fair Market Values, which is the price a willing seller would receive from a willing buyer. Your property is an investment of which the value of such investment changes over time as supply and demand change in the real estate market.
No. Passed in 1976, the Ohio legislature enacted property reform known as House Bill 920. Its purpose was to keep inflation from increasing voted taxes. When property values increase due to inflation, a reappraisal, or an update, House Bill 920 goes into effect. The voted, or full millage, is lowered by the Ohio Department of Taxation resulting in a lower effective tax rate. The opposite is also true when property values decrease due to a reappraisal or an update. House Bill 920 again goes into effect. The voted, or full millage, is increased by the Ohio Department of Taxation resulting in a higher effective tax rate. The only increased revenue taxing districts receive from voted levies is from the added value of new construction.
If you do not believe you could sell your property on the open market for the amount of the county appraisal, you can appeal your value by filing a Complaint Against the Valuation of Real Property. This form can be found on the Auditor’s webpage or you can call the Auditor’s Office at 330-740-2010 to request the form by mail. Appeals may be submitted by mail or in person to the Auditor’s Office in the County Courthouse Building between January 2 and March 31 each year. Filing this form will formally initiate the appeal process with the Mahoning County Board of Revision. Detailed information regarding the appeal process and the Board of Revision can be found here.
