For more details on this topic, view the FAQ: "Why did my tax bill go up even though the city did not raise taxes?"
If you live in the city limits, the city gets approximately 33% of your property tax payment. The school gets around 51%, the county gets 13% and the community college gets 3%. There are also some businesses located in TIF areas where a portion of the tax bill is split with these percentages and a portion is diverted to a particular project.
If you live outside of city limits, no portion of your property taxes goes to the city.
There are five factors that determine your tax bill. Four of these factors are tax rates set by the school, city, county and community college. The fifth factor is your property valuation. If all four entities did not raise taxes but your property valuation increased, your individual tax bill could still be higher.
