Each property is appraised to find it's market value. All values within a taxing district (school, city, etc.) are summed. Homeowners (and other) exemptions are subtracted. The tax district determines it's budget by subtracting other revenue sources.
Levies for taxing districts serving your property are added together:
The total of these levies is multiplied by your taxable value to determine your tax:
Levy = .017813729 = 1.7813729 %
$61,000 X 1.7813729% = $1,086.64 tax
You may appeal the taxable value of your property only during the month after you receive your assessment notice in May. If you do not appeal the current year assessed value in May or June, you must wait until the next year. If you feel that the levy of a taxing district is too high or have questions regarding the district function, call the district directly. You can have input regarding the annual levy rate of a taxing district by attending the annual budget hearing.
Assessment notices are issued to inform you of the value of your property. Pay close attention to the assessment notice, as the value listed will be used in calculating your tax bill. Instructions for the appeal are on the back of the assessment notice. Appeals must be filed no later than the 4th Monday in June.
