What is a mill levy?

Mill levies are the rates of taxation set by each taxing authority, not the Assessor’s Office. Each tax authority has a district boundary. A taxpayer’s total mill levy is calculated based upon where their property is located. The county, towns, schools, and special districts each have a separate mill levy, which is indicated on the annual tax bill you receive from the county treasurer.
