Notification was recently sent to Tax Exempt Entities informing them of House Bill 110 (HB110), enacted September 2021. HB110 created Ohio Revised Code Section 5713.083 of which you can find the full text by clicking here.
Due to HB110, tax exempt entities are required to submit the DTE23N form if they are no longer eligible for tax exemption. If the auditor discovers an owner failed to property notify the auditor as required by Ohio Revised Code, the Auditor shall impose a charge against the property equal to the total amount by which taxes were reduced for any of the five preceding years the property was not entitled to the exemption and was owned by the current owner.
The DTE23N form can be found by clicking here.
If there is no change in the exemption status at this time, no paperwork is required by the County Auditor’s Office. If you should have any questions regarding HB110, please contact the Real Estate Department of the County Auditor’s Office by calling (740) 455-7109, option 1.
