The real estate tax bill is
a combined notice of ad valorem taxes and non-ad valorem assessments.
The tangible tax bill is exclusively an ad valorem tax. Ad valorem
taxes are based on the value of the property. Examples of
ad valorem taxes are school, county and city taxes.
Taxing authorities are
responsible for setting ad valorem millage rates. A millage rate is the
rate of tax per thousand dollars of taxable value. To determine the ad
valorem tax, multiply the taxable value by themillage rateand divide
by 1,000. For instance, $100,000 in taxable value with a millage rate of
5.0000 would generate $500 in taxes.
Ad valorem taxes are paid
in arrears (at the end of the year) and are based on the calendar year
from January 1 – December 31.
