The County Treasurer does not determine the amount of any tax. Taxable values are determined by the County Assessor and the County Equalization Board. Tax rates (sometimes referred to as “millage rates”) are set by the Excise Board. Taxes are based upon budgets submitted by taxing jurisdictions, and include the amounts necessary to pay bonded indebtedness approved by a vote of the people.
You may want to do a quick estimate of the property taxes on the home you plan to purchase. You can find an estimator at this link. (You will need to know the “Tax Area” which is available from the property tax record.)
