Friday, 13 March 2015
Summit County Fiscal Officer Kristen M. Scalise CPA, CFE reminds property owners that the deadline to file a complaint form (DTE-1) against the valuation of real property is Tuesday, March 31, 2015.

Taxpayers who do not agree with the valuation of their property have the opportunity to file a complaint with the Board of Revision for review of property values. When a complaint is filed, the Board of Revision will hold a hearing, consider all testimony or evidence provided, and issue a decision on whether an adjustment should be made to the property valuation. The board does not hear complaints regarding real estate taxes.

Complaint forms (DTE 1) can be filed by the property owner and must be signed, dated and notarized. Submissions are required by law to be postmarked on or before March 31, 2015. Complaint forms can be hand delivered or mailed to the Summit County Fiscal Office, 175 S. Main Street, Room 302, Akron or to our satellite office at Summit County Board of Revision, 2525 State Rd., Room 153, Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio 44223.

Property owners may obtain a complaint form (DTE 1) by calling 330-643-2631 or by visiting Board of Revision Complaint. The complaint form is a PDF fill-in for your convenience.

Board of Revision members are the Fiscal Officer, the County Executive, the County Clerk of Courts and/or their representatives.
