The Treasurer’s Office makes every effort to mail all tax bills to the party responsible for payment. It is the obligation of the taxpayer to obtain the property bill(s) if not received in the mail. Failure to receive a tax bill does not excuse your failure to pay, nor does it relieve a taxpayer of the mandatory penalty and/or interest imposed by law.
Please notify the Treasurer’s Office of any change in mailing address.
There is a space provided for this purpose on your return envelope. We require all address changes in writing or by email according to ORC 323.13.
