Manhattan Taxes

About Property Taxes

Property taxes are collected on the assessed valuation of taxable real and tangible property. The County Clerk provides the estimated assessed valuation used in the calculation of property taxes necessary to fund the city budget. Based upon the projected assessed valuation, the mill levy is calculated to fund ad valorem property tax revenue requirements.
