How much will my property tax increase for my home and land that I own in Butler County?
In Alabama, property tax is based on property classification, millage rates, and exemptions. The table below provides examples of the additional cost that a typical homeowner will incur if the proposed 6 mill increase is approved. This table does not take into consideration exemptions such as farm land, individuals with disabilities, individuals over 65 years of age, etc. that may apply to some property owners. Typically, agricultural property (farm land) is eligible for exemptions that result in a much lower tax. The exemption for senior citizens can result in no cost in taxes for the property owner. Detailed descriptions of the exemptions are available on the Alabama Department of Revenue website at https://revenue.alabama.gov/property-tax/property-tax-assessment/ .
