Property taxes are a primary source of funding for local governments – counties, cities, towns, townships, libraries and other special districts (such as fire and solid waste).
Property taxes are ad valorem tax, meaning they are allocated to each taxpayer proportionate to the value of their property. The taxes paid based on property assessments (minus any deductions, exemptions and credits) are collected by local government officials and then used to pay for services spanning public safety (police and fire) public health (water, sewer), road, street and highway construction and maintenance and more.
