Dear Residents:

The Auditor serves as the county's chief fiscal officer, chief assessor and sealer of weights and measures. As fiscal officer, the auditor is responsible for maintaining county financial records and issuing warrants for payment of county obligations. As assessor, the auditor is charged with determining property values for taxing purposes and transferring real property deeds. And, as sealer of weights and measures, the auditor tests and certifies the accuracy of various commercial measuring devices.

Additionally, the County Auditor serves as secretary to both the Board of Revision and the Budget Commission. Other duties include issuing dog and vendor licenses, certifying tax rates, and administering various tax reduction programs.

Please do not hesitate to contact myself or my staff should you have questions regarding the services we provide Licking County residents.
