Property taxes are the #1 source of revenue for Pike County.
The property tax money pays for your schools, your roads, Children Services, and all of the other government functions provided by the Pike County government. When taxes are not collected, then everyone in the community suffers. The Auditor’s office is NOT trying to collect these taxes. Collection of taxes in Ohio is the responsibility of Treasurers. We are trying to identify all parcels that need to be deleted from the real estate records.
Some of these parcels are no longer considered “real” parcels due to splits and combinations with other land. This means, when the job is done correctly, those parcels are deleted from the records. When the Auditor and Treasurer perform their duties as elected officials in accordance with Ohio law, these deleted parcels are required to be removed from the tax duplicate.In the last three years, we have cleaned up hundreds of parcels that should have been deleted, sometimes many decades ago. The oldest parcel found to date, after extensive research, should have been deleted in 1926. However, the majority of the hundreds of parcels we found, most of the errors were from the early 1980s until 2016.
Our goal is to complete the cleanup of the Pike County real estate records, but time is running out, so we need your help. Are you on this list? Or friends or family or great-grandparents? (yes, seriously.) We currently believe there are a least 50 parcels that should have been deleted before 1960, so do not limit yourself to living family and friends. Sometimes the names may be your grandparents or great-grandparents. For example, there are two parcels under the name E.O. Jones. We are quite confident these parcels are not real, but the records were not maintained properly and too many years have passed. It is often difficult and sometimes impossible for us to verify the history, so we appreciate any assistance the public can provide to track down all of the parcels that need to be deleted from the records.
