A tax levy is the amount of money that a county/community brings in through personal and property taxes. The property tax levy is raised solely from property owners in the county/community; it is not related to the income taxes paid to the state and federal governments.
Money raised from our property tax levy is generally used for the betterment of the county; uses include roads, law enforcement, EMS/Ambulance service, health department and infrastructure improvement. Special property tax levies are sometimes used for special projects.
Where the property is located determines the tax levy for the upcoming year, after consultation with local recipients of funding to determine their operating needs.
