CAUV Changes Due to 2015 Triennial
Ohio Revised Code requires that soil tables used in valuation of farmland are updated in conjunction with countywide revaluation and triennial updates. Soil values are calculated by the State of Ohio, Department of Taxation, by capitalizing net income from agricultural products. Factors involved in this process include yield information, cropping patterns, crop prices, non-land production costs, and capitalization rates.

2015 Triennial Value Change Notices are currently being mailed. CAUV program participants with questions about changes in soil values are encouraged to attend a CAUV Town Hall Meeting. Please call (419) 213-4873 for more information or to RSVP. All town hall meetings begin at 1:00pm.

Affect on Home Sites
The State of Ohio, Department of Taxation requires that all dwellings have a minimum home site of one acre. If more than one acre is used as a home site, all such acreage will be valued at full market value and will receive no reduction in value.

Geographic Information Systems (GIS)
Our GIS and aerial photography allows our staff to identify differing land uses, including home sites greater than one acre. This technology may affect home site valuations and Current Agricultural Use Values. For more real estate tax information, please contact our office at (419) 213-4406 or use AREIS Online.
