Why are my property taxes higher this year?
There are many reasons why taxes increase year to year, including:
  • An increase in the tax rate of a particular taxing district

  • An increase in the property’s assessed value

  • An exemption that had been previously applied to a property may have expired or the applicant may have failed to renew the exemption

  • New owners may not qualify for present exemptions on property
