Why should properties be equalized?
Since ad valorem taxes are based on value, it is imperative to have all property valued periodically on a uniform basis, using a modern system of valuation. Market value appraisals become the foundation for assessments, and equalized values create equalized, and uniform taxes. This process assures the taxpayers in Ashtabula County that each is paying only his or her fair share.
