DELINQUENT PROPERTY TAXES: By County, Tax Year 2017, Due and Payable in Calendar Year 2018

The table shows total delinquent property taxes for tax year 2017 for all Ohio counties.  It includes all property taxes reported as unpaid in tax year 2017, including taxes that became delinquent in preceding years which were still unpaid in 2017. Additionally, the data includes penalties and interest applied to both property tax delinquencies and special assessments.

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 approximately $1,759.1 million, an increase of 0.8% from the tax year 2016 total of approximately $1,745.5 million.  Real and public utility tangible personal property delinquencies comprised approximately $1,361.0 million of the tax year 2017 delinquencies while special assessment delinquencies totaled approximately $ 398.1 million.

Among Ohio counties, Cuyahoga had the highest amount of total delinquencies, with approximately $486.6 million.  Noble County had the lowest amount of delinquencies at $675,458.

Data for this table were taken from the exempt real property tax abstracts (form DTE-94) filed by county auditors with the Ohio Department of Taxation.
