How are the amounts due calculated?

The tax rate indicated on the July tax bill is half of the previous year’s tax rate, based on the total assessment at the time. This tax bill is printed and mailed out near the end of May, and due on July 1st (or the next business day if July 1st falls on a weekend). 

Once the Department of Revenue sets our tax rate, your total tax for the year is calculated by taking your total assessed value against the new tax rate (per thousand). The amounts paid in July are deducted, and that is how your second bill amount is determined.
