In Boaz, Alabama, 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 attached to the land (such as buildings, trees, minerals, etc.).

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

Usually, 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 Boaz, Alabama

Most often, property taxes in Boaz, Alabama 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%.

To levy this tax, Boaz, Alabama tax authorities must initially figure out how much a house or piece of land is worth.

As you probably know, value is not always objective. For example, the owners of family heirlooms usually 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.

There are many different ways to value property using objective factors. Generally, the appraiser in Boaz, Alabama will consider the current state of the real estate market, the size of the property, any improvements (buildings, roads, etc.) that have been made on the property, and the manner in which the property may be legally utilized (zoning).
