Calculate Real Property Taxes

How Real Property Taxes Are Calculated

This example illustrates a residential property in the City of Bryan with a market value of $100,000. Please note that tax rates vary between taxing districts and the rates, reductions and credit %s used in this example are specific to properties in the Bryan City taxing district. Use the following steps:

  1. To compute the taxable or assessed value, multiply the market value (1) times 35%.
  2. To compute the gross taxes, divide the taxable rate ($81.45) by 1000 and multiply the factor by the taxable value ($35,000).
  3. Multiply the gross taxes by the reduction factor of 30.9931% to compute the tax reduction.
  4. Subtract the tax reduction from the gross taxes to compute the taxes before the Non-Business and Owner Occupancy 
  5. credits.
  6. Multiply the total from step (5) by 8.2425% to compute the Non-Business Credit.
  7. Multiply the total from step (5) by 2.0606% to compute the Owner Occupancy Credit.
  8. Subtract the amounts computed in steps (6) and(7) from the total computed in step (5) to compute the net taxes due.
