Real Property Tax Service - Department 10
About the Department
The Office of Real Property Tax Service maintains and continually updates the Real Property Data Base on a daily basis with the most current information available for each property in Franklin County. Based on this information the tax maps are kept updated which can be linked up to each parcel in the Real Property Data Base. This data base is the basis for all property tax bills within the County, including all municipalities, school districts and special districts and is vital intellectual property. Also the tax maps are a very useful tool for the Assessors and the public. "The law provides that a tax map is prepared for the use of Assessors, therefore, a tax map is to be used primarily for Real Property Assessment and Taxation Administration." It is intended to be used only to describe the parcel for the purpose of Assessment Levy and Enforcement of Taxes (Opinion of Council: Book 5 Page 93). The department works in conjunction with municipal assessors and government agencies to ensure assessment rolls are equitable and are properly maintained, and provides other support services to municipal assessors as needed. The department also maintains their own portion of the County Web Site (franklincony.org under the Real Property Tax Services Department) with such information as the posting all the Assessment and Tax Rolls and various other helpful information along with a web-based GIS mapping application, wherein the County tax maps are available on-line.
