Assessment Notices

 

An assessment notice is not a tax bill and does not set your taxes; it assigns an estimate of market value to your property. Local taxing jurisdictions such as school districts, cities, library districts and counties each set their own levies (tax rates). The exact impact upon your individual tax bill cannot be calculated until this fall when the taxing jurisdictions, including state and local governments set their final levies for the year.

Calculation

The actual tax levies will be set this fall by your local school boards, city councils, water districts, fire districts, library districts, the County Legislature and other taxing jurisdictions. Your real property tax bill will be calculated based on the following general formula:

  • Market Value x Classification % = Assessed Value x Tax Levy (as determined by City, School District, etc.) = Tax Bill

 

Classification Percentages

  • Residential - 19%
  • Agricultural - 12%
  • Commercial and All Other - 32%

Informal Review Request

If you disagree with the Market Value on the Reassessment Notice and have information to help determine the Market Value of your property, you may request an Informal Review.  Assessment Department staff will review the additional information provided with your request and make a determination that reflects the fair market value of the property and verify that it is classified correctly. All Informal Review requests must be submitted by May 31, 2021.
