Certified Tax Rates

There are two types of tax rates: (1) entity and (2) area. A group of entity rates make up the area rate. The area rate becomes the final tax rate charged by counties against the assessed value of a specific property. Just as households spend money on various budget items, taxing entities frequently have more than one budget. Tax rate increases have legal disclosure requirements called “truth-in-taxation.” Here you can find information about entity budgets, entity tax rates, area tax rates and truth-in-taxation.
