Auditor’s website now reflects proposed levies
LISBON–Columbiana County Auditor Nancy Milliken announced Wednesday the levy tab on the office’s website has been updated to reflect the proposed levies for the May 7 election. These levies involve Wayne Township, Sandy Creek Fire District and the Beaver Local and Crestview Local school districts. For properties located in one of the above jurisdictions, owners can go to an internet web browser and enter to determine the approximate tax change that likely will occur if the levy is approved.
In order to access the proposed cost for a property, enter the above access to the website on a computer, enter the parcel number for the property, click on the parcel detail, then click the “levy” near the top of the screen. The “estimated annual tax” should appear on the screen. Milliken is providing this service in the hope that any approved levies will not be a surprise to taxpayers. Questions regarding any other levy changes being made by the taxing authorities should be directed to the appropriate township or municipal fiscal officer, or school treasurer.
