What will my taxes be now that I am in the City?

Taxes are calculated on property valuation. The City’s current tax rate (FY-2019) is $0.4674 per $100 of property valuation. Based on the City’s current tax rate, tax on a sample property valuation of $100,000 would be calculated as follows:

$100,000÷100 = $1,000 x .4674 = $467.40 City tax. It should be noted that the City tax rate is adopted annually and is subject to change.

Note: Properties with an Agricultural exemption will only be taxed on the taxable value – i.e. a property with an exemption may have a market value of $100,000, with a taxable assessed value of $1,500 after the qualifying agricultural exemption. The tax calculation will be as follows: $1,500 ÷ 100 = $15 x .4674 = $7.01 due in your annual taxes.
