Why do my property taxes sometimes change?
There are several factors that can affect property taxes. The most common factors are changes in the market value and changes in the mill levy. Market value changes, up or down, can be a result of changing market trends, condition of the property, or remodeling and/or additions to the property.

Mill levy changes are determined by each political subdivision (city, county, school, park) setting their annual budgets. Those total figures are then divided between taxpayers based on value and type of property owned. If your property is currently valued at or near market value, you should expect little or no change in the True and Full Value of your home. However, the property taxes you pay may change if the mill levy changes as determined by the city, county, school or park board.
