Property Taxes:
Delinquent Property Taxes-Taxes Due and Payable in Calendar Year 1996, by County

The table shows total delinquent property taxes for calendar year 1996 for all Ohio counties. The delinquent taxes listed include taxes in preceding years which were still unpaid in 1996 as well as taxes that were due and went unpaid in calendar year 1996. 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 $789.0 million, a 6.0% increase from the 1995 total of $744.1 million. Of this amount, real and public utility personal property delinquencies comprised $551.8 million while tangible personal property delinquencies amounted to $237.2 million. Special assessment delinquencies totaled $74.8 million.

Approximately $133.4 million of this amount was comprised of real and public utility personal property. Morgan County had the lowest amount of delinquencies at $317,484 (real and public utility personal property accounted for $316,890 of this amount).
