Monroe County Tax Reassessment Beginning soon

Monroe County Tax Reassessment Photo Imaging to Begin

 

Monroe County has contracted out a third party company to begin work on the County-wide tax reassessment. Tyler Technologies, Inc. of Dayton Ohio will begin collecting detailed, street level images of properties over the next few weeks and will continue through October/November.

Field staff will be photographing properties from clearly marked white vans and will have photo identification this is visible at all times. Photographs will also be taken from public right-of-way when possible, and no images of people will be taken.

The goals of the tax reassessment project:

  • Ensure fair and equitable property values by collecting updated property information.
  • Improve quality of county’s real estate data.
  • Save tax payers money by increasing efficiency in the property tax administration process.
  • Provide home and business owners with “before” photos in case of loss.
  • Verify property addresses to assist police, fire and EMS respond in case of emergencies.
