How Property Tax is Calculated



Want the low-down on how Property Tax is calculated? Here it goes… 




Property tax is tax based on the value of real property, such as counties, towns, villages, schools, road and other services for home owners. Your property tax is determined from your county and the jurisdictions in each county itself. Many people often wonder how to calculate your property tax and how it all works out.

Here are the steps of how it is calculated.
  • Taxing jurisdiction ( school district, municipality, county, special district,)
  • Taxing jurisdiction determines revenue from all sources other than the property tax( state aid, sales tax, user fees)
  • Revenues are subtracted from the budget and the remainder becomes the lax levy. The tax levy is the amount of the tax levy that is raised through the property tax.
  • To determine the tax rate, the taxing jurisdiction divides the lax levy by the total assessed value of all the property in the jurisdiction.
  • Because tax rates are generally expressed as “per $1,000” of taxable assessed value” the product is multiplied by 1,000.
Looking over your property taxes and knowing how they are calculated is always beneficial for managing your finances.

Step 4: We will handle all of the details during the review process so you can sit back and relax. But we must warn you, this is not an overnight process which is why you NEED to file now! 

Step 5: You will receive your reduction in the form of an adjusted tax bill or in a refund check. Sometimes they will even do a little bit of both. But regardless, these taxes need to be tackled!

Our experience and our relationships in the industry make us the can't miss service for the tax season. And wait, we haven't even told you the best part yet... 

We ONLY get paid if you receive a reduction. If you are denied for whatever reason, there will be no fee or obligation attached to you. What this also does is it ensures that our team is going to work their absolute hardest throughout the process to get you the best reduction possible. If they don't, nobody saves and nobody gets paid.
