In Andalusia, 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 fixed to the land (such as buildings, trees, minerals, etc.).

Property taxes in Andalusia, 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 (typically 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 Andalusia, Alabama

Most often, property taxes in Andalusia, 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, Andalusia, Alabama tax authorities must initially figure out how much a house or piece of land is worth.

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.

With that in mind, the land appraisers in Andalusia, Alabama look at numerous factors, including the state of the local real estate market, the square footage of the house, and the permissible use (zoning) of the land.
