Pauld­ing County farm­ers could be in for a rude awak­en­ing when they get their tax bills in Jan­u­ary.

The CAUV (or cur­rent agri­cul­tural use value) is going up for many soil types in the county.

The CAUV rate is going from $670 an acre to $1,600 an acre for crop use and $850 for wood­land use. The CAUV rates are set by the Ohio Depart­ment of Tax­a­tion.

There are 23 coun­ties that are under­go­ing either a re-evaluation or tri-annual update in the state. Pauld­ing is the only local county in this round.

Prop­erty own­ers in Pauld­ing County will see the new rates on their 2013 tax bills, which will be mailed out in Jan­u­ary. Williams County under­went a re-evaluation in 2012, which was payable in 2013. In 2014, payable 2015, rates will be exam­ined in Defi­ance, Henry, Put­nam and Williams counties.
