The Franklin County Board of Revisions (BOR) hears formal complaints on property valuations and disputes on the Rental Registration fees that may have been charged to selected properties. Complaints are accepted from the end of November through the end of March, 2019.

Filing a complaint allows property owners to schedule a hearing before the Board of Revision, which is comprised of the county auditor, treasurer, and president of the board of county commissioners or their representatives. At the hearing, property owners may present information such as recent appraisals, or sales data for similar properties in support of their complaint.

Franklin County homeowners concerned about their property taxes can attend one of several sessions offered.

The Board of Revision informational meetings are designed to help homeowners understand how to appeal the property value assessments that have been made by the Auditor’s office, which are used to calculate property tax assessments. The deadline to appeal is April 1.

“The Franklin County Auditor’s office wants to make it easy to understand and appeal property value assessments,” Franklin County Auditor Michael Stinziano said in a news release. “We will offer outstanding public service that will make it easier for homeowners to remain in their homes.”
