The Tax Division of the Department of Finance is responsible for the issuing of tax bills and the collection of all taxes (real estate, personal property and motor vehicles), and tax liens levied by the City.
Mill Rate for Fiscal Year 2013-2014 will be 27.50 Mills
Mill Rate for current Fiscal Year 2012 - 2013 is 26.60 Mills
Mill Rate for Fiscal Year 2011 - 2012 was 25.31 Mills.
A Mill is 1/1000 of a dollar
Taxes are computed by multiplying assessment value by the Mill Rate
Example: Assessed Value of Property $200,000
Mill Rate 26.6
Therefore: $200,000 x .0266=$5,320.00 annual tax
