Example of a property tax calculation:

Assume: Property’s assessed value is $100,000 and is fully serviced.
Mill rate is 8.25.
The property tax calculation is:

$100,000 x 8.25= $825
1,000

In addition to $825, there is a $555 charge for water and sewer.

The total amount of taxes charged for this property would be:
$825   (property tax)
+ $555    (water and sewer charge)
$1,380

Note:  the minimum amount of taxes payable on any property is $275.
