  6. Value of City of Lawrence Property Tax Dollars To figure monthly expense for city services: Market value of home = $120,000 City mill rate = 28.987 First, determine assessed valuation by multiplying the value of home by 11.5%: $120,000 x 11.5% = $13,800 Second, determine City property tax bill by multiplying assessed value by mill rate levied by the city: $13,800 x .028987 = $400.02 City Tax Liability = $400.02 Third, determine the monthly City property tax expenses for City service by dividing the city property tax liability by 12 months: $400.02/12 = $33.34 Monthly City Property Tax Expense = $33.34
