Departments - Real Estate - Appraisals


Ownership, appraised value, legal description, property address, building description, building footprint records and photographs are available in the auditor's map room on the 19th floor of the Franklin County Courthouse, 373 S. High St., and on this website.

In Tax Year 2016, Franklin County reached a record high of $102.3 billion in total real estate market value. The previous highs came in 2015 ($100.8 billion) and 2010 ($99.6 billion).

In addition, owners of properties that have been damaged by fire, flood or other means are encouraged to submit a Property Value Reduction Application. A substantial reduction in property value will result in a lower property tax bill until the property has been essentially restored to its prior condition. Applications for value reductions for properties damaged between January 1 and September 30 are due by December 31 of the same tax year. Applications for properties damaged between October 1 and December 31 are due no later than January 31 of the year following the damage. The amount of the value reduction allowed is adjusted quarterly depending upon when the damage occurred. For more information, please call 614-525-4663 (HOME) or email

2017 Reappraisal

The Franklin County Auditor's Office is collecting property information for the 2017 Reappraisal. Our field appraisers are in various neighborhoods throughout the county attempting to make contact with property owners to discuss their property characteristics. Field appraisers are wearing lanyards with clear identification of who they are and who they represent.

If you have any questions concerning this matter, please give our office a call at 614-525-4663 (HOME). To learn more about the 2017 Reappraisal process, please check out this PowerPoint.
