What is the mill levy?

The mill levy is the "tax rate" that is applied to the assessed value of your property.

One mill is one dollar per $1,000 dollars of assessed value. It consists of a local portion which is used to fund area services and a statewide portion which is used to fund public schools.

The statewide school mill levy is currently 20 mills. However, the first $20,000 in appraised value of your home is exempt from the statewide school mill levy.
