How do I calculate the property taxes on my property?

Example If the appraised value of your home is $50,000:

  1. Multiply the appraised value by the assessment percentage for your property:
    • $50,000 (appraised value) x 0.115 (assessment rate) = $5,750 (assessed value)
  2. Multiply the assessed value by your mill levy and then divide by 1,000 to estimate the property tax you owe:
    • $5,750 (assessed value) x mill levy = assessed value mill levy by tax bill
    • Contact the County Clerk to find out what your mill levy is.

Due to 1998 state legislation, the tax bill on residential property (your home) will be reduced by up to $46 for the 1998 and 1999 tax years.
