What Determines the Amount of a Property Tax Bill?

The amount of a particular property's tax bill is determined by two things: the property's taxable assessment and the tax levies, i.e., property tax budget, of the taxing jurisdictions in which the property is located. The tax rate is determined by dividing the tax levy to be raised from all, or part, of an assessing unit, and the applicable total taxable assessed value. The assessment is determined by the assessor and should be based on the value of the property less any applicable property tax exemptions.
