District Tax Levy Compute tax base (add up the assessed values of all the taxable real property in the district = \$100 million). Set the budget (\$2.5 million) Subtract intergovernmental aid (\$1M) Divide the remainder (\$1.5 million) by the tax base (\$100 million) to calculate the statutory property tax rate =.015 or 1.5 percent or 15 mills

Jump to first page Mill Levy Property taxProperty tax rate. A mill is equal to \$1.00 of tax for each \$1,000 of assessment, or.1 percent. To calculate the property tax multiply the assessment of the property by the mill rate and then divide by 1,000. For example, a property with an statutory assessed value of \$500,000 located in a municipality with a mill rate of 10 mills would have a property tax bill of \$5,000.00 per year

Statutory vs Effective Property Tax rates Property tax bill is calculated by multiplying the sum of tax rates that apply to the property by the property’s AV. The effective tax rate is found by dividing the tax bill by MV

Jump to first page Statutory vs Effective Property Tax rates Property tax bill is calculated by multiplying the sum of tax rates that apply to the property by the property’s AV. The effective tax rate is found by dividing the tax bill by MV (a better measure might take account of the MV of all the property in a jurisdiction and not just the taxable property).
