4. Calculating and Paying Your Taxes:
You can estimate what your property taxes will be if you
know the "assessed value" of your property and the tax levy
rate. For example, if the assessed value of your property
is $100,000 and the levy rate is $15 per thousand dollars
$100,000 X .015 ($15 per thousand) = $1,500 estimated tax
How To Pay Your Property Taxes
The County Treasurer mails property tax statements
during February each year. The first half may be paid by April
30, and the balance by October 31, without penalties for late
Many tax statements are sent to lending companies that require
homeowners to maintain a property tax reserve account. If
you do not receive your property tax statement, or if you
know that your bank pays your taxes and you want to know the
amount of your tax, contact the county treasurer's office.
You may pay your
property tax to the County Treasurer in person or by mail.
If you mail a check, be sure to include the tax parcel or
account number on the check and include the tax statement's
Property Tax Rates Differ
The amount of property tax due on comparable properties
may be different throughout a county. Such differences are
due to three factors:
- The various combination of taxing districts in different
areas of the county.
- The amount of the budget for each taxing district.
- The presence of voter-approved special levies and bonds.
