You can look at the county auditors site and see what your assesed value is. You can go in and fight the valuation if you feel the assesed value is to high. The time period to file is Jan 1 to March 31 so you will have to wait until next year if the valuation is to high. The auditors have been keeping a good eye on valuations so you really need to be prepared. Also if your area has not dropped as much as some areas the amount of tax that you pay may have went up becasue of the system mandated by Ohio law.

Have your property appraised by independent appraiser or Realtor and compare it to your county auditor appraisal value currently  of record.  Have adjusted if necessary.

Here we can protest our taxes if we think the county has them assessed too high. If that's is what you want to do, contact a local agent to give you comps. Some will even help guide you through the process.

Contact your local taxing agent in the county or state office.  They should be able to inform you of the actual taxes for your property.  If you are over paying then contact your lender
