Franklin County Auditor Creates Interactive Title Form to Replace Old DTE-100 Form

COLUMBUS, Ohio – As part of his commitment to creating a modern, efficient and accountable office, Franklin County Auditor Michael Stinziano announced Thursday a new electronic format for the frequently-used real estate title form DTE 100.

The new form replaces one that previously had to be filled out in triplicate by hand, a process that was burdensome for those in the real estate industry who had to use it. The DTE-100 is also known as the Real Property Conveyance Fee Statement of Value and Receipt form.

“I am excited to unveil this new, interactive form, which will eliminate bureaucracy and make the filing process much more efficient for title companies and anyone who uses the DTE-100 form. We will continue to look for new ideas and innovations that will bring the Auditor’s office into the 21st century,” Stinziano said. 

The Auditor’s office will offer in-office support where residents can come and both fill and file these forms directly.

Kevin Alexander, President of Search 2 Close, praised the step saying “Increased efficiency in the title and transfer process is important not only to companies like ours, but to every day residents looking to transfer property more efficiently. I commend Auditor Stinziano for working so quickly to modernize the system.”

Over 50,000 DTE 100 forms are processed annually.

The announcement of the new form comes as Stinziano seeks to lead an office that is transparent, accountable, accessible, and offers excellent public service for the people of Franklin County.
