Your property bill is the end calculation of multiplying your assessed valuation by the local millage rate. The Assessor simply reports the current assessed value of your property. You determine the amount of the tax by voting for, or against, local millages. You also determine the amount of tax by voting for elected community and school leaders who you empower to set millage rates within specified limits.
Remember: A general increase in assessment can be negated on the tax bill by a general decrease of the millage rate.
