Gallia County Auditor, Larry Betz directed the collection of data and the revaluation of real estate for the entire county in 2005. The next reappraisal is due in 2011. In 2002 a triennial adjustment to real estate values occurred in accordance with Ohio State Law. The next triennial update will occur in 2008. During the intervening years, changes result from physical changes to the property (new construction), Board of Revisions complaints, or the discovery of incorrect or previously unknown information.

With the exception of the Current Agricultural Use Valuation (CAUV) program, all real property in Ohio is to be valued at its estimated fair market value or the price that it would be expected to bring in an arms length sale.

In addition to the Revaluation and Triennial update duties, the Gallia County Auditor's Office administers the collection of new construction and the processing of valuation complaints. New Construction: duties include:

  • Review of building permits issues
  • Review of parcel land splits and boundary surveys accepted by the Tax Map Department
  • Inspection of new construction
  • Valuation of new construction
  • Valuation of new land configurations (splits, plats, etc.)
  • Maintaining real property characteristics
  • Real Estate Conveyance and Transfer fees
    • Real Estate Conveyance Fee $4.00 per $1,000.00
