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 2005 for all Ohio counties. It includes all property
taxes reported as unpaid in calendar year 2005, including
taxes from preceding years that became delinquent and were
still unpaid in 2005.
Three categories of delinquent taxes are presented: tangible
personal property; all real property plus public utility
personal property (delinquencies for both taxes are not
separated); 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 $1,452.2 million, an 11.7% increase
from the 2004 total of $1,299.9 million. Real and public
utility personal property delinquencies comprised $879.4
million of the calendar year 2005 delinquencies while
tangible personal property delinquencies amounted to $478.6
million. Special assessment delinquencies totaled $94.3
Among Ohio counties, Cuyahoga had the highest amount of total
delinquencies, with $347.3 million. Approximately $202.5
million of this amount was comprised of real property. Morgan
