What is the city’s tax rate and who sets it?

The City’s 2021-2022 fiscal year tax rate is $0.5001 per $100 assessed valuation. City Charter states it is the responsibility of the City Council to set the tax rate. To calculate your city tax bill you must divide the taxable assessed valuation of your home by $100, and then multiply that figure by $0.5001. For example, John and Jane Citizen own a $27,262 home. Their city property tax portion is calculated as follows:

  • Taxable Assessed Valuation = $27,262
  • Divided by $100 = $272.62
  • Multiplied by $0.5001 = $136.34
  • $136.34 = Please note this is the City’s portion of your annual tax bill, not your total tax bill.
