Property taxes are determined by tax rates and assessment ratios which vary by location and state. A realistic method to compare property taxes from different locations is to use the ‘effective tax rate’. Effective tax rates combine city, county, school, and state tax rates into one convenient figure – the annual tax for each $1,000 of property at its fair market value. This rate applies to all property – land, buildings, equipment and inventory. Certain property is exempt from local property tax.
