How are my property taxes calculated?
Market Value x Assessment Ratio = Assessment x Milage = Property Taxes
Example: $85,000 x .04 = 3,400 x .137 = $465.80
$85,000 x .06 = 5,100 x .137 = $698.70
Homestead Exemption status is also available for qualified applicants. Qualifications are:
1. 65 years or older; 2. declared totally or permanently disabled; 3. legally blind
Homestead Exemption status allows individual home owners to deduct the allowable amount per State Law from the Market Value of Property each year. Home exemption amount is $50,000.
Example: Market Value – Home Exemption x Assessment Ratio = Assessment x Mileage = Property Tax. $85,000 - $50,000 = $35,000 x .04 = $1,400 x .145 = $203
