Real Estate/Property Tax (2.85 mils)  The millage rate is the amount per $1,000 of the assessed value of a property used to calculate taxes on property.  The millage rate is multiplied by the total taxable value of the property to arrive at the property taxes due. To determine the rate on every $1,000 of value, multiply the rate by 1,000 or simply move the decimal point three places to the right. Though not required, millage rates are often rounded to two decimal places, which gives you 2.85 mills or $2.85 of tax on every $1,000 of taxable property value.  Formula:  Assessed value/1000 * millage rate=property tax .  For example– $160,000/1000=160, 160*$2.85= $456.00
