How tax bills are calculated for the July and December bills
You can’t take the total tax due in December and multiply it by 2 thinking that is the total tax bill as that is incorrect. The December tax bill is the total tax bill for the year.
Below is an example of a property tax billing:
When using the assessed value use your property's assessed value with the rates and what you paid for July tax bill.
The July bill is calculated using ½ of the prior year’s tax rate against the property's assessed value. (example - 2017 tax rate $25.56 and ½ is $12.78 and the old assessed value is 213,800 for a July tax bill of $2,732.36)
In November when the new rate was set and the new assessed value was set the bill is calculated as a whole and the July bill is subtracted off and the difference of those two is what is due. (example - 2018 new tax rate $21.96 and new assessed value of 272,700 for total 2018 taxes due of $5,988.00)
equals December tax bill due = $3,255.64
For the July 2019 tax bill we will take ½ the current rate of $21.96 which is $10.98 and multiply that by the new assessed value of 272,700 for a total of $2,994.25. As you can see it is not 1/2 of the previous December tax bill.
