Tax Division

Committed to Excellence

The Tax Division of the Prosecutor's Office provides legal representation for the Licking County Treasurer's Office and the Board of Revision. It also handles tax appeals and delinquent tax collection, as well as the following types of cases:

Tax Foreclosures for delinquent real estate taxes or for tax certificates.

Board of Revision Appeal Cases for Individual taxpayers appealing the assessed value of their real property.

In Bankruptcy matters the Tax Division files proofs of claim on behalf of the Licking County Treasurer for real estate, personal property and mobile home taxes. We also file claims in cases for restitution and county mortgages. In addition to filing the claims, our division monitors the Chapter 13 payments and instructs the Licking County Treasurer's Office on how to apply these payments.

The Tax division represents the County Treasurer in every private Mortgage Foreclosure action filed by Mortgage companies foreclosing on a defaulted mortgage loan.

Assistant Prosecutor Austin Lecklider is Chief of the Tax Division.
