Figuring Taxes

How Do I Figure My Tax?


The method for figuring ad valorem taxes requires four steps:
  • You must know the taxable market value of your property
  • The assessment ratio (11% Real Property - 13.75% Personal)
  • Any exemptions
  • The tax rate for your area of the county

Tax Bill Example


The example is based upon a property that has a taxable market value of $50,000 with homestead exemption and a tax rate of $100 per thousand. In this example, the final tax bill is $450. This could vary if the district in which the property is located had higher or lower school, city or other bond issues. Rates generally vary from $86 to $134 per thousand within the county.
