DELINQUENT property taxes:
By County, Tax Year 2012, Due and Payable in Calendar Year 2013

The table shows total delinquent property taxes for calendar year 2013 for all Ohio counties.  It includes all property taxes reported as unpaid in calendar year 2012, including taxes that became delinquent in preceding years which were still unpaid in 2012.

Two categories of delinquent taxes are presented: all real property that includes public utility tangible personal property (delinquencies for these categories 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 $1,900.6 million, a drop of 2.1% from the 2011 total of $1,940.6 million.  Real and public utility tangible personal property delinquencies comprised $1,640.4 million of the calendar year 2012 delinquencies while special assessment delinquencies totaled $260.2 million.

Among Ohio counties, Cuyahoga had the highest amount of total delinquencies, with $556.0 million.  Van Wert County had the lowest amount of delinquencies at $840,794.

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