April Community Update

A picture of the cover of the Franklin County Auditor's Office 2023-24 Annual Report.


Throughout 2023, your Franklin County Auditor’s office was engaged in educating and informing the public about the state-mandated 2023 mass reappraisal and other functions of the office. The office has released our 2023 Annual Report that details all of the hard work that went into both the reappraisal and all the other work of the office. 

More than 450,000 properties were assessed as part of the 2023 Mass Reappraisal, and that was just the beginning of the project. At all stages of the reappraisal, efforts were made through the Know Your Home Value campaign to include property owners in the process, through surveys, exhibits, Property Value Reviews, the Homeowner Assistance Program, and most recently Board of Revision filing clinics. It was all part of the goal of conducting the most accurate, equitable reappraisal possible while ensuring the voices of property owners would be heard.  

In addition, the office continued to serve the residents of Franklin County with enhanced and effective services.  

An updated Tax Incentive Hub was unveiled and a revamped and enhanced Tax Incentive Council Review (TIRC) Report was released with an independent economist analysis. More than 87,975 dog licenses were issued, 3,579 gas pumps, cash registers and scales were inspected, and 44,107 constituent calls were handled through our main phone line, (614) 525-HOME. I also held 713 community hours meetings and 273 community meetings at locations across the county.   

In short, 2023 was an extremely busy and productive year for your Auditor’s office. I look forward to a new year of innovative programs and initiatives that provide the very best services for the residents and businesses of Franklin County.

Reminder: Check your Property Information for Accuracy on the Property Search Page 

One of the best ways to ensure the accuracy of your property records is to check your information on your Auditor’s office website’s Property Search page. To search for your property, simply search by owner, address, parcel ID number, subdivision or condo complex, or use the advanced search function for more options. The resulting page will show you information on your property, from home square footage to the number of rooms and bathrooms to improvements that have been made to the property.
