Sample Property Tax Report for a Milwaukee County, WI property


The figures presented here are all from official sources. However, other factors, about which we have no data, may affect the property tax calculation.

Assessed Value

Assesed value is placed on a property by the municipal assessor for purposes of taxation. The assessed value is used to determine the property tax amount and represents the property's taxable value unless exemptions are applied.

Land assessed value $37,400
Improvement assessed value + $80,500
Assessed value = $117,900
Market Value

The fair market value of property in the Milwaukee County is an estimate of its market value as of January 1st in the assessment year. It is the property's assessed value divided by an assessment ratio. The ratio for this property is currently set to 0.9619%. However, estimated fair market value is a less reliable estimate than the one prepared by the assessor: fair market value is not used in the calculation of property tax.

Land value $38,881
Improvement value + $83,688
Fair market value (estimated) = $122,569
Property Tax

Property tax is calculated by multiplying the taxable value with the corresponding millage rates and is an estimate of what an owner not benefiting from tax exemptions would pay. The rates are expressed as millages (i.e the actual rates multiplied by 1000).

Tax description Assessed value Tax rate Tax amount
Property tax $117,900 * 31.2327‰ = $3,682.33

Net tax represents the amount the present owner pays including exemptions.

Property tax $3,682.33
First dollar credit - $231.32
Net tax = $3,451.01

Some townships in Milwaukee County can apply other forms of taxation for the purpose of collecting public revenue. These forms of taxation represent amounts of money added to the net tax, established by the local authorities and applied to each household unit. Current tax represents the amount the present owner pays including extra charges and special assessments.

Net tax $3,451.01
Additional charges + $305.00
Current tax = $3,756.01
