In Bethel, Alaska, the government imposes a tax (a legally-mandated payment made to the government) on real property. "Real property" is defined as any piece of land, or object permanently or semi-permanently affixed to the land (such as buildings, trees, minerals, etc.).

Property taxes in Bethel, Alaska are calculated as a percentage of the appraised value of the property. Property taxes are paid to the state or local government at regular (often yearly) intervals.

Usually, the federal government does not collect property taxes anywhere in the U.S. Property taxes are collected almost exclusively by state and local authorities.

How Property Tax is Calculated in Bethel, Alaska

Property tax in Bethel, Alaska almost always takes the form of a tax levied on the appraised value of the property in question. Property tax rates in the U.S. range from 0.2% to around 5% of the property's value.

To levy this tax, Bethel, Alaska tax authorities must first figure out how much a house or piece of land is worth.

Value, in some ways, is not an objective thing. For example, your childhood home is probably worth much more to you than its simple market value. However, the tax authorities use only objective factors in calculating a home's taxable value.

Therefore, the people in charge of appraising the value of property in Bethel, Alaska have to consider only objective, factual criteria when calculating the value of a piece of land. These criteria include the state of the real estate market, the zoning of the land (which determines how it can be used), and any improvements that have been made to the land, among other things.
