Each year the cost of local services is spread across the value of taxable property.
Local Budgets / Assessed Value of Taxable Property = Mill Levy
County appraisers are responsible for uniformly and accurately valuing all property each year. That way, all citizens fairly share in supporting the cost of local services. Local services include police and fire protection, roads, parks, public health services and schools.
All property is valued annually as of January 1st.
