As County Auditor, my responsibilities are varied and extensive. I am the chief fiscal officer for the county as well as the tax valuation assessor. It is my job to see that the funds of Washington County are spent legally and that tax revenues are distributed properly, but I do not audit anyone. The Auditor of State has that responsibility. As tax valuation assessor, I am required to have each parcel of real estate valued at market value every six years. The Ohio Tax Commissioner typically orders a statistical adjustment three years later based on actual market sales in our County.
Our office processes various license applications on behalf of the State of Ohio, most notably dog licenses. We also administer several property tax reduction programs such as homestead and current agricultural use valuation. As the county sealer of weights and measures, I am required to check dispensing pumps for fuel quantity (not quality), scales and timers for accuracy, and prepackaged items for quantity.
