Delaware County is one of the first counties in central Ohio to participate in the Treasurer of State’s transparency initiative, Ohio Checkbook.  As County Auditor, I am dedicated to promoting accountability to the taxpayers of Delaware County.  This platform enables taxpayers to see exactly how their tax money is being spent.  Taxpayers can view, sort, download and share the spending data available through the Ohio Checkbook initiative.  We are proud and excited to be able to provide this information to our taxpayers for the first time in Ohio history.  Click here to access Delaware County’s expenditure data.

  Real Property Valuation
Delaware County has more than 74,000 separate parcels of real property. It is the duty of the Auditor's office to see that every parcel of land and the buildings thereon are fairly and uniformly appraised and then assessed for tax purposes. A general reappraisal is mandated by Ohio Law every six years and an update to those values every three years. Real property is appraised at its estimated market value. While real property in Ohio is appraised at its market value it is taxed at its assessed value which is thirty-five percent (35%) of its appraised value.
