The current real estate tax rate is a total of 2.5 Mils (of assessed value), broken down as follows:

  • 2.3 mils for general government services*

The formula to calculate real estate taxes is: Assessment x mils divided by 1000 = tax (face amount).

*We are no longer showing emergency services as a separate line item on the tax bill.  The cost of Police, Fire and Ambulance is actually greater than the line item previously itemized.
