Residential property values remain stagnant in Mahoning County
The Mahoning County Auditor’s Office has submitted tentative values for the county’s real estate to the Ohio Department of Tax Equalization for the triennial value update.
Based on real estate sales data for the past three years, DTE, which will make a final decision in the next few weeks, is recommending no change in residential values and a 5 percent increase in agricultural values.
However, Mahoning County Auditor Michael V. Sciortino said he is asking for no change in agricultural real estate values to protect the county’s farmers.
Any changes in values will be reflected in first half 2015 real estate tax bills.
