What is a millage rate and where do I find it?

The millage rate can be found on the property tax statement or by contacting the local treasurer. The millage rate is the rate at which property taxes are levied on the property. A mill is 1/1000 of a dollar. Property taxes are computed by multiplying the taxable value divided by 1,000, then multiplying it by the number of mills levied.
