Dear Resident:

As County Auditor, I'm here to safeguard the assets of Geauga County and to help the County continue on the path toward a strong financial future.

It is my job to see that the funds of Geauga County are spent legally and that tax revenues are distributed properly.

This Office keeps the general accounting records; prepares financial reports; prescribe systems for the receipts and disbursements of the County; audits and processes accounting transactions for grants, payroll and invoices; verifies compliance with purchasing laws; performs statutory reviews of records maintained by other officials, and prepares annual estimates of budget revenues.

Ohio law places more responsibility upon the County Auditor than any other County Official. Many of the functions performed by my office are complex and require the skills of trained public servants with many years of experience. I am proud of my employees and of the outstanding job that they do for the people of Geauga County. They do their jobs with pride and care for you, the citizens of Geauga County. The major duties of each department are summarized in their pages accessible throughout this website.

This first quarter of 2017 we are especially busy at your service driven by deadlines for:

  • Taxes are typically billed in January (first half) and June (second half) of each year and are always due on the second Wednesday of February and the second Wednesday of July.
  • Homestead Exemption has a new amount to qualify.
    • Income level must be less than $31,800 for 2017 (2016 Ohio Adjusted Gross Income).
  • Registration of the County’s dog population (licenses) discount deadline is January 31st, 2017.
  • Flyover completed, coming Fall 2017 - Click Here for Information
  • The County Reappraisal of properties is near completion and the tentative abstract is due to the State Auditor by June 12th, 2017
