  3. Property Tax Calculation

The most important source of funding for local governments in the State of Florida is the ad valorem revenue (property tax).  In Sumter County, property taxes are assessed by several government entities each year to finance basic government reoccurring operations.  If you live in a municipality, you must add the applicable local millage rate to the total millage rate for the County.  

Ad valorem property taxes are calculated by multiplying the taxable value of the property by the millage rate.
The millage rate is the amount of property tax charged per $1,000 of taxable property value.
