17 MENDON COMMUNITY SCHOOLS 2013 BOND PROPOSAL Millage Definition The amount of mills needed for a given project(dollar amount) in a community depends on the value of the property in the area. The mills generated can be used either to pay back a construction bond or to pay as you go for sinking fund projects. Property tax is calculated by taking the assessed value of a property, multiplying it by the mill rate and dividing it by 1,000. Example: $100,000 market value home has an approximate $50,000 State Equalized Value (SEV) for tax purposes. To calculate millage: $50,000 / 1000 = $50 per year in additional taxes for every 1 mill
