How do I calculate the property taxes for real property?
  1. Looking at your notice of value, find the "appraised value" of your property. Multiply the appraised value by the "assessment percentage" for your property.
    __________ (appraised value) times _______% (assessment percentage) = assessed value
  2. Multiply the assessed value by your "mill levy" and then divide by 1,000 to estimate the property tax you owe.
    _________ (assessed value) times ________ (mill levy) divided by 1,000 = taxbill

    Assessment Rates are as follows:
    Residential = 11.5%
    Farm Home Site = 11.5%
    Ag Land = 30%
    AG Building = 25%
    Vacant Lot = 12%
    Not for Profit = 12%
    Commercial and Industrial = 25%
    Other = 30%
