The Franklin County Auditor’s office are beginning preparations for next year’s 2020 triennial update.
The triennial is a process where the Auditor’s office uses a statistical analysis of neighborhood home sales to update property values across the county. The update keeps home values aligned with market values and will be followed by a more thorough reappraisal in 2023, when a state-registered appraiser visits every property in the county and evaluates a home’s individual characteristics.
The triennial update process is not intended to increase or decrease taxes, but rather to keep property values up to date with the market. The goal, as your Franklin County Auditor, is to complete the most accurate assessment of property values possible, and I welcome your feedback.
Your Franklin County Auditor’s office will be as accessible and transparent as possible to homeowners during this important Triennial Update process, and we will host expanded and varied opportunities for homeowners to challenge the new values we assign.
