Residents Beware. Employees of the Erie County Auditor's Office are not currently auditing properties county-wide. We have three employees or representatives of the County Auditor's Office inspecting new construction and random farms in the county. Those employees will identify themselves with a picture ID and will be wearing distinctive shirts that identify them as employees of the Erie County Auditor's Office. In addition their vehicle will be clearly marked Erie County Auditor's Office with the county seal.

If someone appears at your door and does not have a county ID or is not wearing apparel that clearly identifies them as employees of the Auditor's Office, do not allow them access to your property and call my office at (419) 627-7446 or your local law enforcement agency.
