Property Tax Definition & Calculation

A property tax is an ad valorem tax -one that is based on the value of the property. In Wyoming, the County Assessor is charged with the responsibility to value property at its fair market value. This value is then applied to the level of assessment, as determined by the state legislature. Currently, the level of assessment is 100% for gross production of minerals and mine products, 11.5% for industrial use property, and 9.5% for residential and all other real and personal property. The result is assessed value. The assessed value is then applied to the mill levy to derive the exact tax dollar amount due each year. Once the tax is determined, it is the duty of the County Treasurer to collect taxes.
