2023 Triennial Property Value Update

We are nearing the completion of our statutorily required Triennial Update for tax year 2023, which affects the taxes you pay (next year) in calendar year 2024. The updated property values are available on this website by using the SEARCH function. They are based on sales that occurred during 2020, 2021 and 2022. Property owners are encouraged to review their updated value to ensure that the information for their property is correct and that the value reflects the current market conditions.  Learn more about the process.

This website also includes an option to review recent SALES of property to assist in evaluating the accuracy of the update.

If the updated property value assigned appears accurate, NO ACTION IS NEEDED. If you disagree with the value assigned to your parcel, please contact our office through EMAIL or phone (740) 592-3223. We are currently scheduling appointments for you to meet with someone from our staff to review your value.  

If you still are not satisfied with your updated value following an office review, you will have an opportunity to file a COMPLAINT with the Athens County Board of Revision between January 1 and March 31, 2024.

Auditor's Advisory
Ohio Checkbook

The Ohio Checkbook serves as the singular and most trusted resource for Ohioans to obtain local and state financial information. In November 2019, the Ohio Checkbook became a collective result of Lt. Governor Jon Husted and Ohio Treasure Robert Sprague unveiling a joint initiative aimed at enhancing government transparency by providing Ohioans real-time financial and transactional data.

The Ohio Checkbook is the result of this effort bringing together features from two first-of-their-kind - the Ohiocheckbook.com and Ohio’s Interactive Budget. Upon its launch in 2014, OhioCheckbook.com set a new national standard for transparency in government and was recognized three times by the U.S. Public Interest Research Group as being ranked number one in transparency for providing online access to government spending data. In six years, more than 1,150 local government entities around Ohio partnered with the Treasurer’s office to make financial data available through the website.

Ohio's Interactive Budget was launched in 2016, by the Ohio Office of Budget and Management (OBM), as a first of its kind comprehensive open checkbook that enabled users to see not only how state money is spent, but also how revenue is generated and allocated via the state budget. The Ohio Interactive Budget site was an extension of the state accounting system that provided the public access to the financial and transactional data maintained in the state's accounting system.

Each site's functionality and purpose has been preserved in the new Ohio Checkbook site, which merged the cutting-edge features of OhioCheckbook.com and Ohio’s Interactive Budget, placing them under one roof.
