Understanding Property Tax


Your property tax bill is composed of local and state property taxes. Local property taxes help fund local programs and services, such as public schools, fire and police protection, streets, libraries, and more. State property taxes fund school districts, towns, cities, counties, and other special taxing districts.

Some properties such as seasonal-cabin and commercial-industrial are also subject to a state property tax. This state general tax goes into the state general fund.


Property tax is administered by counties. If you have questions about valuation, classification, or about your specific properties tax, contact your county assessor.
