Property Tax Division

The Property Tax Division prepares the levy for all taxable properties in the County. To create this, we administer the tax rates for voter approved debt, multiply these rates times the assessed values and add any direct charges sent to us by taxing entities. This levy is used to create the tax bills mailed by the Tax Collector. The Division also distributes those taxes to cities, schools, special districts, and the County and processes corrections to the levies.
