We occasionally receive requests for details on tax levies and how they work. The requirements are set by state law. While it's an "oldie but a goodie" our 2000 Citizen's Report featured a well-written and still applicable explanation of tax levies and effective rates. The information begins on page four of our 2000 Citizen's Report at http://www.hcauditor.org/retax_menu.asp.
To perform professionally the statutory duties of County Auditor with integrity,
independence, and a spirit of technological innovation while emphasizing outstanding customer service,
excellent public information, and efficient use of taxpayer resources with a streamlined,
well-trained and appropriately compensated staff.
It is my pleasure to serve as Auditor of Hamilton County Ohio. As Auditor I act as the County's Chief Fiscal Officer, Chief Assessor, Chief Payroll Officer, and Sealer of Weights and Measures. These duties require my office to provide taxpayers, consumers, school districts and local governments a variety of services, all of which are part of this site. We are continually updating and expanding our website, so please e-mail me if you have any suggestions or comments.
