The City’s 2022-2023 fiscal year tax rate is $0.65814 per $100 assessed valuation. Article V, Section 2 of the Mesquite City Charter states it is the responsibility of the City Council to set the tax rate. To calculate your city tax bill you must divide the taxable assessed valuation of your home by $100, and then multiply that figure by $0.65814. For example, John and Jane Citizen own an $100,000 home. Their city property tax is calculated as follows:
- Taxable Assessed Valuation = $100,000
- Divided by $100 = $1,000
- Multiplied by $0.65814 = $658.14
- Total Property Tax Bill = $658.14
Please note this is the City’s portion of your annual tax bill, not your total tax bill.
