How Property Tax is Calculated in Irondale, Alabama

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

In order to levy this tax, the tax authorities in Irondale, Alabama must have a uniform formula for figuring out the value of a particular piece of property.

In some ways, value is a subjective thing. For instance, the home in which you grew up is probably worth far more to you than its market value. To get around this, the government uses nothing but objective factors in deciding how much a piece of real property is worth.

To this end, the Irondale, Alabama 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.
