What are taxing authorities?

The taxing authorities are school boards, special districts, etc. in the area your property is located.  They hold annual public budget hearings to determine the funds needed for next year's operations, which will determine the mill levy.  Most hearings are in the fall. Being present at the budget hearings makes you more involved and informed about the cost and quality of services provided. Click here for Tax Authority Contact Info.
