The APPRAISED VALUE represents the market value of a property. In Johnson County, the County Appraiser's office determines appraised value, taking into account the property's location, topography, size, shape, quality, age, and condition of building(s), as well as current market conditions for similar properties.

The ASSESSED VALUE is by law a fixed percent of the appraised value. The assessed value of a residential property is currently set at 11.5% of its appraised value.

The MILL LEVY is the tax rate that is applied to each $1,000 of a property's assessed value to determine the amount of taxes owed.

PROPERTY TAX is calculated by multiplying the ASSESSED VALUE by the current MILL LEVY.
