Mr. Mahoney

Taxes that are levied against real estate so that each taxpayer will share the cost of various
government activities in proportion to the value of the property are known as ad valorem taxes
(according to value). Therefore these taxes are based on the value of the property. How do we
compute property taxes?

Suppose, for example, that the assessed value of a particular property is 70% of the full market
value, which is estimated at \$50,000, and the official tax rate is \$4 per \$100 of assessment. The
amount of the tax is computed as follows:

Compute the assessed value: market value x assessment ratio
\$50,000 x .70= \$35,000
Compute the tax: assessed value/100 x tax amount per \$100 = property tax
35,000/100 x \$4= \$1,400

#1 A house has a market value of \$80,000 and the tax ratio is 70%. What is the assessed value of
the property?

#2 If property is assessed at 40% of its fair market value (FMV), what would be the assessed
value of a property that is worth \$47,500?

#3 If property is valued at \$65,000 and assessed for 60% , what is the property tax if the rare is
\$5.30 per \$100 of assessed value?

#4 Property with a market value of \$74,000 was assessed at 37% of value and taxed at the rate of
\$4.75 per \$100 pf assessed value. What was the amount of the tax?

#5 A house has a market value of \$44,200. The assessment ratio is 50% of market value and the
tax rate is \$35 per \$1000 of assessed value. What is the annual tax on the property?

The tax can also be expressed as so many mills on each dollar of assessed value. A mill is 1/10
of one penny. In decimal form, one mill is written as \$ .001
1 mill = 1/10= .001
10 mills = 1penny= \$ .01
100 mills = 10 cents= \$ 10
For example, 54 mills ( in decimal form) is written as \$.054

A property is assessed at \$75,500 and the tax rate is 23 mills. The amount of the tax is:
23 mills= .023
\$75,500 x .023 = \$1,736.50
