Dear Resident:

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

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.

I hope that this website will help provide an insight into the work that this office performs.

The major duties of each department are summarized in their pages accessible throughout this website. Should you have any specific questions concerning the services available through this office, my staff and I will be happy to assist you. Please do not hesitate to call or visit us personally at the Court House Annex Building, 231 Main Street, Chardon, Ohio. Our office is open 8:00 A.M. to 4:30 P.M., Monday through Friday, excluding holidays.

We are here to serve you.


Charles E. Walder

Geauga County Auditor
