2008 is the year in which County Auditors in Hamilton and Butler Counties completely re-assessed all real properties in their jurisdiction. Despite the broad loss in property values, County Auditors in both counties increased overall assessments.
If your property value has been assessed too high you can challenge their assessments before the County Boards of Revision. These courses provide hands-on instruction as to how to complete the complaint for, challenge your values and win a reduction before the Board of Revision.
Please bring along your actual 2008 tax bill and a calculator and instructors will show you how to complete the form.
