How are my property taxes calculated?

Your annual property taxes are determined by the following formula: Taxable Actual Value * Assessment Rate * Total of applicable Mill Levies = Tax Amount. The Assessor is only responsible for the valuation of your property, the Taxable Actual Value. If you disagree with the value of your property in the NOV, you may file an appeal. See “How do I appeal my value?” If you disagree with the value of your property in your tax bill, you will need to file a Petition for Abatement.  You can find more information on our Abatements page.
