Help our Senior and Disabled Citizens
Our office is proud to have created the PTAP program over 30 years ago. PTAP (Property Tax Assistance Program) helps our senior citizens who may need one time help in paying their property taxes. The funds are privately raised (no tax payers dollars) and the majority of the fundraising comes through our Franklin County Combined Charities Program. This year we had a pie throwing contest and raised over $1,000 to this worthy cause. For pictures and more details, please "Like" us on Facebook.

"In the past, there have been companies who have solicited homeowners to file the paperwork for them. That is simply a waste of money," States Treasurer Leonard.
