BUDGET SEASON IS (always) OPEN AGAIN!!!!

Calculating your tax bill:

The tax liability for a year is calculated in the fall of that year. While you will receive 2 tax bills per year, the first bill is an estimate or educated guess at what the tax liability may be for the year. It is calculated using the prior year’s tax rate and assessed value. However when the second bill arrives it is the true tax liability using the newly established tax rate in the fall. The first half bill amount is subtracted from the total tax liability to arrive at the final tax bill due in December.

For example: Yearly tax liability = (assessed value) x (tax rate)/$1000  e.g., for 2007 the tax rate was 15.81/$1000. If your assessed value was $449,000, your tax liability for 2007 was $7097.

For 2008, the tax rate is $17.35/$1000. If your assessed value is now $399,100 your tax liability for 2008 is $6924.

Total decrease from 2007 to 2008 is $173.  If you paid $3548 for the first half  tax bill in July 2008 then the 2nd half or December tax bill amount will be $6924 – $3548 = $3376.

The reason you paid $3548 for the first half of 2008 is that it is ˝ of $7097---1/2 the 2007 tax liability.

The first half 2009 bill will be 1/2 the tax liability for 2008 = $3462.
