How do I calculate Personal Property taxes?
The appraised value is multiplied by the assessment rate to create the assessed value. The assessed value is then multiplied by the Mill Levy for the tax unit where the property is located as of the assessment date (January 1st). This will give you the full year property tax amount

a. Example: 2.6A Appraised Value is $5,000
b. $5,000 x .30 = $1,500 (assessed value)
Multiply the assessed value by the “mill levy”
a. Example: $1,500 x .146919 = $220.38 (Tax Value)
b. Once taxing groups (school districts, cities, county, etc.) set their Mill Levy, this amount used to calculate your taxes (.146919)
