Taxes and Assessments

Every year, the City of Toledo uses an assessment process to cover costs associated with providing sprinkling, sweeping, cleaning, and snow removal services for streets within Toledo. The total assessment amount varies based upon the total cost of providing these services (as approved by Toledo City Council) and the proportional benefit to properties owners based on the number of feet of property touching the street being maintained (frontage). To see your property's specific calculation of taxes and assessments, you can find your property on the County Auditor's Real Estate Information System (AERIS).
