The 2017 reappraisals are in for Franklin County and you may or may not be pleased with the new assessed value of your home by the county. If you are not happy with the assessed value of your property you have until April 2, 2018 to file a complaint with the county.
In order to file your complaint with the Board of Revisions applicants need to fill out a Complaint Against The Valuation of Real Property form located here. The finished form needs to be printed, notarized, and either mailed to the Board of Revision (Board of Revision, 373 S. High St., 20th Floor, Columbus, OH 43215) or emailed to BOR@Franklincountyohio.gov.
Trouble filling out the form? Have questions and want someone to help you in person? There are 5 mobile offices being offered prior to the application deadline where residents can get help filling out the form. They are:
