Where do my taxes go?

Most of the revenue from property taxes stays local. Your dollars are used to fund the services in your community that you rely on, such as your local police and fire services and your local school district.

The primary beneficiaries of property taxes are schools. About 60% of every tax bill goes to the local school district. 

You can look-up your property on our property search website and view the "levy distribution" tab to see where your tax dollars go.
