MEDINA COUNTY, OHIO – Medina County Treasurer John Burke announced that 76,599 first half 2016 tax bills were mailed today to property owners in Medina County. The official due date for these property tax bills is February 10, 2017.
This tax bill reflects the new 2016 update reappraisal value placed on taxable property by the County Auditor in accordance with Ohio law. An insert included with each tax bill explains this in more detail. It was reported that the 2016 update increased residential property values in Medina County by approximately 9% and commercial property values by 5%.
“To make paying your taxes easier we provide a variety of payment options,” Treasurer Burke noted. “In addition to making payments through our website, www.medinacountytreasurer.com, you may also pay online with an electronic check, ACH, credit card or PayPal account.”
