If the state hasn’t provided the info to the county, how is Hamilton county Ohio able to get payments prior to assessment (as posted above)?Chip wrote: ↑Wed Dec 05, 2018 5:06 pmI understand that there has to be a liability. There currently isn't one for the OP, as the state hasn't provided the info to the county to enable them to calculate the tax. I have had discussions over the years with my county's tax office (also in Ohio) about this very issue. But there WILL BE a liability once they have that information, which normally happens in the last week of the calendar year.Spirit Rider wrote: ↑Wed Dec 05, 2018 4:03 pmPeople were playing fast and lose last year. You have to incur a liability with an opportunity to pay. This jurisdiction is clearly indicating that liability does not attach until they bill you and they will not be accepting payments before then. It couldn't be more clear. There is a big difference between paying before it is due and paying before it is owed
I think the "fast and loose" thing here is Warren county's wording on their web site. It is correct that you can't pay the bill now, because the bill does not currently exist. But when it does exist the tax will be owed and I fully expect that the OP will be able to pay it. I believe that will occur in late December.
We will see.
