How to calculate your property taxes in just four simple steps.

Residential
  1. Taxable Assessment x Mill Rate / 1000 = Initial Levy
  2. (Initial Levy x Mill Rate Factor) + Base Tax = Municipal Levy
  3. Taxable Assessment x School Tax Mill Rate = School Tax Levy
  4. Add your Municipal Levy amount to your School Tax Levy amount to calculate your total taxes owed.
Agricultural / Commercial / Industrial
  1. Taxable Assessment x Mill Rate / 1000 = Initial Levy
  2. (Initial Levy x Mill Rate Factor)  = Municipal Levy
    • If your Municipal Levy is LESS than the Minimum Tax, you pay the Minimum Tax. If your Municipal Levy is MORE than the Minimum Tax you pay the Municipal Levy as calculated.
  3. Taxable Assessment x School Tax Mill Rate = School Tax Levy
  4. Add your Municipal Levy (or Minimum Tax depending on the results of #2) amount to your School Tax Levy amount to calculate your total taxes owed.
