      Common Questions

      What is the value of your tax dollar

      In an attempt to demonstrate the real value of a Normandy Park resident's tax dollar, let us use the following example:

      Assessed Valuation of Home = $600,000 To determine property tax liability, divide the assessed valuation by 1,000 then, multiply by the effective property tax rate:
      $600,000/1,000 = $600.00 $600.00 x 10.39325 = $6,235.95

      The City’s share of the $6,235.95 is $589.50
