2021 Triennial Update

State law requires the County Auditor/Fiscal Officer to appraise every parcel fairly and uniformly every three years. The current update involves a study and analysis of sales that have taken place in the past three years to determine whether a change in market value has occurred since the last Reappraisal in 2018. It is not designed to increase taxes, but to keep property values uniform with the marketplace.

An increase in property value does not result in a comparable increase in the amount of taxes owed, thanks to House Bill 920. When property values increase, House Bill 920 kicks in to lessen the impact. For more information on HB 920 and to use the “Property Tax Estimator”, click the link below.

Residents can attend community meetings to learn about how the triennial update was conducted. Due to time constraints from COVID, the County is not able to hold informal meetings to look at values as was done previously.

On December 27, 2016 at a special call meeting, legislation was passed to reduce our tax credit. Our rate is still 2.50% for 2017 but our credit for working outside Lorain has changed. We now only give credit up to 2% of other city withholding. That means anyone whom works in a city where the tax withheld is more than 2% will only get 2% of that amount credited to them. This change will not affect your 2016 tax return that is due April 18, 2017.

Tax Rate

  • Lorain’s tax rate is 2.5% (effective January 1, 2013)
