A Guide for Your Wood County Real and Personal Property

Dear Property Owner,

I have prepared this document in order to better inform Wood County residents on the purpose and role of the Assessor's Office. Our mission is clear and concise: to place a fair market value on real estate and personal property for both residences and businesses. It is my hope that you will come and visit us here at the Assessor's Office.

Thank you.

Sincerely,

Rich Shaffer- Assessor

Please Note:

Your Assessor does not set your property tax. Your tax bill is determined by multiplying a tax rate against your assessed value (60% of market value). Remember, the Assessor determines your assessed value and the levy rate is determined by the legislature (for the Board of Education), the county commission and the municipalities. Levy rate sheets are prepared for your convenience and may be obtained in the Assessor's Office.

BUSINESS TAXES CAN BE ESTIMATED USING THE FOLLOWING FORMULA:

MARKET VALUE OF BUSINESS X 60% = ASSESSED VALUE
