How is my real property taxed?
Tax rates are set by all budget authorities and are separates into 2 types:
  • Primary rates are set by governmental entities such as counties and cities and towns. They are applied to the "limited value" to determine taxes due. These taxes are used for the basic expenses of government and schools.
  • Secondary rates are set by special districts, fire districts and bond issues. Usually taxpayers vote for these districts and bonds, so the rates are applied to the full cash value to determine taxes due.
