All Property Taxes
Property Taxes: Delinquent Property Taxes;
Taxes Due and Payable, by County, in Calendar Year
The table shows total delinquent property taxes for calendar
year 2000 for all Ohio counties. It includes all property
taxes reported as unpaid in calendar year 2000, including
taxes that became delinquent in preceding years which were
still unpaid in 2000. Three categories of delinquent taxes
are presented: tangible personal property; all real property
plus public utility personal property (delinquencies for real
and public utility personal property taxes are not separated
on the county auditor abstracts); and special assessments.
The actual amounts of the delinquencies, and additional
penalties and interest imposed on the delinquent taxes, are
included in the figures.
Total delinquencies were $985.0 million, a 10.9% increase
from the 1999 total of $888.0 million. Real and public
utility personal property delinquencies comprised $598.7
million of the calendar year 2000 delinquencies while
tangible personal property delinquencies amounted to $309.4
million. Special assessment delinquencies totaled $76.9
Among Ohio counties, Cuyahoga had the highest amount of total
delinquencies, with $211.9 million. Approximately $130.8
million of this amount was comprised of real property. Putnam
