How are my property taxes calculated?

Property taxes are calculated by multiplying the assessed value of the property by the mill levy for the taxing area. The assessed value is a percentage of the actual value of your property. (For more information concerning valuation for taxation, refer to the Assessor's page.) The mill levy for the taxing area is the combination of the separate mill levies for each taxing authority within whose established boundaries your property lies. 


Assessed Value...........31,550 

Mill Levy Total.......... x 0.099512 (usually expressed as 99.512) 

Total Property Tax...... $3,139.60
