Colbert County Millage Rates
 
In Colbert County your tax bill is based on millage rates.

The amount of taxes to be paid is determined by multiplying the millage rate by the assessed value less the proper exemptions.

A mill is one-tenth of one cent (.001).  When all the taxing authorities' millage requests are added together, you can calculate the total tax bill.

For example, if you own and live in a residence in Tuscumbia valued at $100,000, you pay taxes on 10 percent of the appraised value or $10,000.  Without exemptions in Tuscumbia you would owe ($10,000 x .048) or $480.00.

An example of commercial or Class 2 property would be $100,000 x 20% (.20) x .048 or $960.00
