Auditor Stinziano Issues Annual Report

COLUMBUS, Ohio – Franklin County Auditor Michael Stinziano released the office’s 2020-2021 Annual Report Thursday, detailing the accomplishments of the office for the past year in serving the residents and businesses of the county.

“Despite these challenges of the past year, your Franklin County Auditor’s office made significant progress in offering our residents and businesses superior public service and an office that is accessible, transparent and accountable. I look forward to more exciting initiatives and advancements as we dedicate ourselves to serving our community.”

The report highlights several seminal initiatives, including:

  • The successful completion of the Triennial Update, a process that updates property values for every parcel in the county. In addition, the office expanded opportunities for homeowners to appeal those values through virtual informal value review meetings, new E-Filing capabilities with the Board of Revision (BOR), and a new Homeowner Assistance Program to help lower- and middle-income homeowners file complaints with the BOR. The office also partnered with Ohio State University’s Kirwan Institute for the Study of Race and Ethnicity to address racial inequities in the appraisals process.
  • Expanding outreach to the community via a new mobile office that is out in the county’s neighborhoods, offering convenient Auditor’s office services to residents. In addition, Auditor Stinziano continues to hold weekly community hours meetings, now conducted virtually due to public health concerns. He has held more than 550 community hours meetings as an officeholder.
  • The release of the first-ever Tax Incentive Review Council (TIRC) Annual Report, detailing the use of tax incentives by municipalities across the county. The voluminous report also includes an online GIS tool that shows where tax incentives are used and source detail about the incentive.
  • A new, more intuitive dog license website that offers more online services for residents, including renewal options and the ability to update a dog’s information.
