Delinquent Property Taxes: Taxes Due and Payable, by County, in Calendar Year 2008

The table shows total delinquent property taxes for calendar year 2008 for all Ohio counties.  It includes all property taxes reported as unpaid in calendar year 2008, including taxes that became delinquent in preceding years which were still unpaid in 2008.

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); 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 $1,748.6 million, a 15.3% increase from the 2007 total of $1,516.8 million.  Real and public utility personal property delinquencies comprised $1,199.9 million of the calendar year 2008 delinquencies while tangible personal property delinquencies amounted to $410.3 million.  Special assessment delinquencies totaled $138.5 million.

Among Ohio counties, Cuyahoga had the highest amount of total delinquencies, with $449.2 million.  Approximately $293.8 million of this amount was comprised of real property.  Monroe County had the lowest amount of delinquencies at $745,837 (real property accounted for $591,152 of this amount).

Data for this table were taken from abstracts filed by county auditors with the Ohio Department of Taxation.
