Chapter 15Taxes and Assessments

Review Gov’t Limitation of Private Ownership of Real Estate

• Taxation (Ad valorem and Income)

• Escheat

• Eminent domain

• Police power

• First step, identify all properties and estimate their values

• Second step, develop a budget and tax rate.

• The budget is determined by the appropriate government officials based on the costs of providing government services to the community (police and fire protection, schools, libraries, street, etc.)

• Dividing the budget amount by the tax digest (total value of properties in the jurisdiction) yields the tax rate necessary to generate the budget amount.

• Third step, bill the property owners and collect the taxes.

• Millage rate

• Assessment ratio

• Exemptions

• The tax bill for a property with a market value of \$120,000 in a jurisdiction that assesses a millage rate of 25 mills on 40% of a property’s market value and permits a exemption of \$2,500 for this type of property is calculated as follows:

Market Value \$120,000

multiplied by Assessment Ratio x .40

equals Assessed Value \$48,000

minus Exemptions (if any) -\$2,500

equals Taxable Value \$45,500

divided by 1000 1000

times Millage Rate x 25

equals Property Tax \$1,137.50

Expressing Property Tax Rates

• Tax appraised value

• Assessed value

• Millage rate (e.g., 80 mills; see previous slide)

Move decimal:

• 85 mills = .085

• 215 mills = .215

• 5 mills = .005

Result: Tax Bill

• Unpaid property taxes

• Assessment appeal

• Property tax exemption

• Property tax variations

• Special assessments

• Ordinary Sales

• Installment sales

• Basisis the price originally paid for the home plus any fees paid for closing.

[Purc. price + Closing costs +Commission = Basis]

• Adjusted basis: basis plus improvements.

[Basis + Improvements (if any) = Adjusted Basis]

• To calculate the gainyou must take the sale price and subtract the selling expenses (“amount realized”) [Selling price - Selling expenses = Amt Realized].

Then subtract the basis (adj. basis) to determine the gain.

[Amt realized – Basis (adj. basis) = Gain (loss) on sale]

Purchase price \$90,000; closing costs are \$500 Basis \$ 90,500

Add landscaping and fencing for \$3,500 Basis \$ 94,000

Add bedroom and bathroom for \$15,000 Basis \$109,000

Sell home for \$125,000; sales commissions Amount realized \$117,000

and closing costs are \$8,000

Amount realized \$117,000

Less basis -\$109,000Equals gain \$ 8,000

• 15 percent

• If property held longer than 1 year

• Sale of principal residence

• Used for 2 of the last 5 years

• Married – exclude up to \$500,000 gain

• Single – exclude up to \$250,000 gain
