Past Notices

  • ALERT: Auditor Underwood urges dog owners to be cautious when purchasing dog licenses on line. No outside vendors legally sell dog licenses in Wayne County. We have had reports of an online vendor fraudulently selling licenses to unsuspecting dog owners. Click here for a statement regarding this scam.
  • ALERT: We have had reports of recorded deed notices being received by property owners in the county. These notices offer a copy of your deed and property assessment information for a "document fee". These notices are not affiliated with our office and this information can be obtained from the Auditor's and Recorder's Offices for a minimal fee (or often, free of charge). Click here for an example of these notices.
  • We are pleased to announce that we have partnered with the Ohio Treasurer of State's Ohio Checkbook project. The Ohio Checkbook provides transparency into government spending. Expenditures from the 2nd quarter of 2019 have recently been added to our dataset. You can access our Ohio Checkbook site here.
  • ALERT: Some potentially fraudulent tax value notices have been mailed to Wayne County property owners, claiming their properties are over valued. These companies claim to be accredited through the BBB. If you are in doubt, please contact the BBB, or the Wayne County Auditor's Office, to confirm the validity of any such notices. Please note that there is NO FEE for filing an appeal with the Auditor's Office.
