What factors affect my property taxes?

There are a number of items that affect your property taxes. The following are those that traditionally have had the largest impacts:

  • Changes in the market values of other property in comparison
  • Changes to the market value estimate of your property
  • Changes to the tax levy, the amount of money requested by taxing jurisdictions to fund programs and operations
  • Legislative changes to the property tax system
  • Legislative unfunded mandates
  • New taxes approved by referendum
