TAX RATE INFO FOR UPCOMING YEAR
08/13/2020

Since implementing a property tax in 2015, Talty's rate has remained at $0.25 per $100 of taxable valuation. Due to changes in legislation  and varying taxable values, the City will begin experiencing the rate fluctuations typical with most taxing entities. This year's  rate will be a slightly lower rate of $0.246654, or 24.6654 cents, per $100 of taxable valuation. Of this, $0.110208 is for maintenance and operations. The balance, $0.136446, will be for the debt service on the 2016, 2017 and 2018 tax notes issued for road maintenance and capital improvements.  The levy of $0.246654 would result in a $617 levy on a property valued at $250,000. A levy on a 300,000 property would be $740.
