The Geauga County Auditor establishes real property value and calculates property tax. This is done by the Appraisal Office, which maintains fair values for all parcels in the county. Appraisers evaluate new construction every year. A reappraisal of properties is done every 6 years, along with a triennial update every 3 years, which provides a buffer. Appraisers only determine property value. They do not set the tax rate, nor collect tax dollars. Watch this video about the duties of the Appraisal Office and click here to learn more.
