WHAT DETERMINES THE AMOUNT OF A PROPERTY TAX BILL?

The amount of a particular property's tax bill is determined by two things; the property's taxable assessment and the tax rates of the taxing jurisdictions in which the property is located. The tax levy is calculated by dividing the amount of the approved budget to be raised by taxes, by the City's total taxable assessed value. The assessment is determined by the assessor and is based on the market value of the property less any applicable property tax exemptions. The tax bill is the taxable assessed value of the property times the tax rate.

WHAT DETERMINES THE TAX RATE?

The tax rate is determined by the amount of the tax levy. There are several steps involved in determining the tax levy. First, the taxing jurisdiction (a School District, city, county, etc.) develops and adopts a budget. Revenue from all sources other than the property tax (State aid, sales tax, user fees, etc.) is determined. These revenues are subtracted from the original budget and the remainder becomes the tax levy. It is the amount of the tax levy that is raised through the property tax.
