The Franklin County Auditor's Office serves as an agent for the State of Ohio in administering the estate tax. Our purpose is to create a tracking system, in which it may be determined if an asset in an estate is taxable or not. This is determined through a tax release.
We are also responsible for collecting any taxes owed. When a tax return is filed with money due, we distribute that money to the proper districts.
You may call 614-525-3235 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org at the Franklin County Auditor's Office for more information.
