How to Figure Your Assessment

Thursday, March 3, 2005; Page VA29

The tax rate proposed in the county budget on Monday was $1.03 for each $100 of assessed value. To compute the tax on a property assessed at $444,766, the county average, divide the assessed value by 100 and multiply by the tax rate.

Step 1:

$444,766 / 100 = $4,447.66

Step 2:

$4,447.66 x $1.03 = $4,581.09
