Q:  Who decides how much property tax will be?

A:  Various taxing districts, including the state and local jurisdictions, levy property tax. The individual taxing districts determine the amount of money needed and the county assessor calculates the tax rate necessary to raise that money. The amount of property tax due on an individual property is based on the combination of tax rates and the assessed value of the property.
