9 What does that tax rate calculation mean to me? The tax rate is based on average assessed property values. The average assessed property values have increased $1,101,424 or 0.40% and the tax levy has decreased ($96,038) or (4.62%) resulting in a tax saving per household. Example: 2012 House Value (Tax Assessment): $100, Home Value (Tax Assessment): $104,000 (.40% increase) 2012 Tax Rate of 0.83 per $100 of assessed Values 2013 Tax Rate of 0.79 per $100 of assessed Values So 2012 Property Tax Dollar Amount:$ $0.83 rate) 2013 Property Tax Dollar Amount:$ ($104,000 $0.79 rate) Actual Dollar Decrease: $8.40, or 1.01%
