Real Estate Tax:   

The residential real estate tax rate is 150.92 for tax year 2021 collected in 2022.

The effective tax rate, which is the rate you pay after reduction is 91.88.

Additionally you receive 12.5% in rollbacks.

There are two simple ways to estimate the real estate tax paid in 2022.

Example: Home with a $150,000 Market Value

➜ Market value $150,000 x 35% = Assessed value $52,500 / 1,000 x effective rate 91.88 = $4,823.70 x 87.5% (after rollbacks) = $4,220.74 estimated tax per year.

➜ An easier method is to simply take the market value of your home $150,000 x 2.8709% (the percentage to market rate) = $4,306.35 estimated tax per year.

Based on the $4,306.35 estimate - Where do your real estate tax dollars go?
