To calculate your tax bill, divide your assessed value by 1,000 and multiply the amount in the mill rate field for your school district.  Learn more about Equalized ValuesThe values above do not reflect the first dollar credit or the lottery credit that will be deducted from the total tax due.


One of the most misunderstood concepts about property taxes is how your taxes are levied against your property.  Most people view the assessment on their home as the critical factor, however, while it plays a role in determining your property tax, it is not nearly as important as the tax levy.  You see, the taxing jurisdiction levies the same amount of taxes regardless of the equalized value in the community.  The equalized value effects the mill rate, but it does effect the amount of taxes collected.
