How is my property taxed?

The primary net assessed value is divided by 100 and multiplied by the tax rate to determine property taxes owed. Tax Rates are set by all budget authorities and are separated into two types:
Primary Rates are set by government entities such as counties, cities, towns, community colleges and school districts. They are applied to the Limited Property Value to determine taxes due to support the basic expenses of government and schools.
Secondary Rates are set by special districts and fire districts, and for the repayment of voter-approved bonds. In most cases, taxpayers vote for the formation of these districts and for bond issues.
