Next Deadline for Filing Property Tax Complaints | Ulmer & Bern LLP
Cuyahoga County and 18 other Ohio counties recently completed the state-mandated six-year reassessment of all real estate in those counties. In Cuyahoga County, across all property types, values increased overall by an average of 10.1%. Home values increased by an average of 10.8%, and commercial and industrial properties saw their values increase by an average of 8.7%.
Each county has its own process for owners to appeal their proposed new values. Cuyahoga County landowners who wish to appeal their proposed value may file a formal complaint with the Cuyahoga County Board of Review from January 1, 2019 through April 1, 2019. For more information on the formal complaint process of the Cuyahoga County, visit the Board of Review website. . Reassessments have also been conducted in other northeast Ohio counties, including Lake, Lorain, Portage and Stark counties, which may have different timelines and complaint processes.
Ulmer’s real estate attorneys have many years of combined experience representing commercial and residential landlords in successful property tax assessment appeals. We recommend that you review your property’s appraisal as soon as possible, as collecting the information needed to support your complaint, such as purchase documents and appraisals, can take some time.
