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

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

Normally, the federal government does not collect property taxes anywhere in the U.S. Property taxes are gathered almost always by state and local authorities.

How Property Tax is Calculated in Wasilla, Alaska

Most often, property taxes in Wasilla, Alaska are simply a set percentage of the property's value. Across the country, state authorities impose a wide range of various tax rates. The highest rates in the country are in the area of 5% of the property's value, and the lowest are less than 1%.

In order to impose this tax, the government of Wasilla, Alaska initially has to decide the taxable value of a piece of property.

As you probably know, value is not always objective. For example, the owners of family heirlooms normally place far more value on them than their objective monetary value. So tax officials have to be careful to only use objective criteria in valuing property for tax purposes.

To this end, the Wasilla, Alaska appraiser will look at things like the state of the real estate market, the size of the land, the existence of additions to the land such as buildings, and the way in which the property is zoned.
