Why do my taxes increase?

Tax increases may be a result of increased property value and/or higher budget demands resulting in an increased tax rate. You can tell which taxing authority increased their tax rate by looking at the comparative taxes shown on your tax statement. Increased property value can be a result of many factors. The Assessor’s Office determines your property value based on state guidelines.
