In Hueytown, Alabama, 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 adhered to the land (such as buildings, trees, minerals, etc.).

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

Normally, 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 Hueytown, Alabama

Hueytown, Alabama calculates its property taxes by requiring property owners to pay a set percentage of the appraised value. While the property tax rate varies greatly across different parts of the country, they fall into the 1-5% range.

To levy this tax, Hueytown, Alabama 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.

Thus, the people in charge of appraising the value of property in Hueytown, Alabama 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.
