If my assessed value goes up, won't my taxes go up accordingly?
Not necessarily. Because property values are generally rising, you can usually expect some increase in your assessed value. However, if your percent change in value is less than the average, your percentage share of the total municipal taxes will actually go down. This is because your percent share of the community value is less than the prior year. If your percent change in value is greater than the average, your percentage share of taxes will rise, but usually less than the direct percent increase in value. This is because the mill rate used to calculate the tax bill will fall by the same proportionate change as the average increase in assessment. Of course, the budgeting process may require an additional tax levy due to increases in municipal, school, county, or other taxing district costs. However, that increase would not be a result of valuation changes and would affect your tax bill even if the valuation changes did not occur.
