How Does One Calculate Their Property Taxes?

  • Assessed value and taxable value are not synonymous terms.
  • Property is assessed as of January 1st.
  • Property is reassessed every 2 years.
  • Taxes are levied on a value determined by the auditor by applying a "roll back" % to the assessed value and deducting any applicable exemptions or credits. The "roll back" % vary each year.
