Millage Rates

Taxes are levied in Clay County by the taxing authorities empowered to do so by the State Legislature. The value of each real estate and tangible personal property is established by the County Property Appraiser. The Board of County Commissioners sets the millage or rate of taxation for the county, the School Board for the schools, the City Council for each municipality. The governing bodies of other independent special taxing districts and authorities set the millage rates for those areas.

The non ad valorem assessment roll for the Solid Waste and Municipal Service Benefit Unit is established by the Board of County Commissioners. The Community Development District Assessments are imposed on neighborhoods by the residents for specific benefits received.

Listed below are the millage rates and the appropriate taxing authorities, along with a telephone number for you to contact for a specific question.
