Grafton Township Assessor Office

Welcome to the Grafton Township Assessor's Office. We have designed our website to service the residents with quick and convenient access to Grafton Township assessment information. We also provide an understanding of the assessment cycle as well as information on exemptions available to homeowners and senior citizens

My goal as Assessor is to provide a welcoming environment to assist taxpayers with their questions and concerns while ensuring an understanding of the Property Tax Assessment and Billing Cycle. Through this understanding, I'm confident taxpayers will have a much higher trust in the assessments they receive. 

I hope you find this website useful. I welcome any feedback that may benefit my ability to better assist the taxpayers of Grafton Township and their property needs.


Sincerely,

Terra de Baltz, CIAO

Grafton Township Assessor
