People who have experienced property damage because of flooding or other natural disasters are reminded that they may qualify for a reduction in property taxes.
State law gives county auditors authority to reduce real estate values for properties that have been damaged or destroyed. Affected property owners must fill out and submit a DTE 26 application.
The application is available online via the auditor s Web site http://co.lucas.oh.us/auditor/DTE26_GEN_1197_with_Letter.pdf or by calling 419-213-4406 to receive a copy by mail.
