How is the amount due of my Property Tax determined?

The amount of property tax due is calculated by using the following formula: •(Total Appraised Value of the property) x (40%) - (Exemptions) x (Millage rate) / (1,000) •Each homeowner’s exemptions vary based on eligibility For example, the tax for a property valued at $100,000 would be calculated as follows: $100,000 x 0.40 = $40,000 $40,000 x 9.50 mills = 380,000 380,000 / 1,000 = $380.00 annual property tax If the property belonged to a person age 65 or over, the calculation would be: $100,000 x 0.40 = $40,000 $40,000 - $10,000 = $30,000 $30,000 x9.50 mills = 285,000 285,000 / 1,000 = $285.00 annual property tax
