Healthy local businesses are essential to a healthy community. The first button has links to resources to help your business be more successful. The second button helps you be visible to your local community. And finally, the third button has links that you can use to support other local businesses.

Why Buy Locally? Research shows that:

  • For every $100 spent in local, independent stores, $68 returns to the community through taxes, payroll, and other expenditures.
  • If you spend the same in national stores, $43 stays locally.
  • If you spend the same on the Internet, $0 stays locally.

Montgomery County Auditor Tornado Tax Relief for Tornado Victims

To receive a reduction in your value as a result of storm damage, you must fill out an Application For Valuation Deduction for Destroyed or Damaged Real Property. The reduction in taxable value to your property will be updated for the 2020 tax bill based on the date of the tornado. That form is available at , or you may call the Montgomery County Auditor's Office at 937-225-4326 to request a form by mail.

Your current tax bill for 2019 will not reflect any damage done to your property. The current bill is based on the value of your property as it existed on January 1, 2018. Any reduction in value will be reflected on 2020's first half tax bill. Value reductions are based on the severity of property damage.

The other counties offer similar reductions.
