Property Tax Rates

Your individual contribution through property taxes pays for programs and services that keep the City running every day and benefit the entire community. The City’s operating and capital budgets are prepared annually, and the operating budget provides the money needed for the City to perform routine operations and provide daily services.  Approximately 46% of the operating budget comes from property taxes.  Property taxes help pay for services such as police, fire and paramedics, animal control, public health, water and wastewater treatment, roads, transit, parks and playgrounds, social services and more.

How your property tax is calculated

There are two numbers that are needed in order to calculate your property taxes: the assessed value of your property (property assessment) and the tax rate. Property taxes are calculated by multiplying these two together.


 (Property assessment) x (tax rate %) = your annual property taxes.

 ($230,000) x (1.29%) = $ 2,967
