How Is The Actual Rate Established?

After determining the taxing unit’s total budgetary needs, its elected governing body decides what actual tax rate it must levy to generate the amount of revenue needed.For example, the total assessed value of a jurisdiction is $10 million and $100,000 is needed for its budget. To fund the budget, its governing body must set a tax rate $1 per $100 valuation ($10 million multiplied by $1 / $100 valuation equals $100,000).
