The 2011 Tentative Reappraisal Values are available on our Property Search page. If you should have further questions please contact us (330) 675-2895.
Ohio Law requires the county auditor to reappraise all real property every six years and to update values every three years. In Trumbull County, the last reappraisal was completed in 2005, and the last update was in 2008, so 2011 is a reappraisal year.
Under Ohio Law, the county auditor does not raise or lower property taxes. Taxes are determined by the voters. The auditor’s responsibility is to determine a fair market value for your property, the price at which the property would change hands between a willing seller and a willing buyer.
