General Information/Property Tax Levies

The Levy proccess has two players:
Taxpayer (You, me, Texaco, Sears, etc.)
Tax Districts (Fire Departments, Schools, Cities, Counties, the State of Washington)
 
We need to know only one piece of data from each player:
Taxpayers The value of their parcels.
Tax Districts Their budget.
 

The levy process is very easy and quite simple:

The amount of money needed by the tax district's budget
divided by
the value of all the taxpayer's parcels in their district
equals
The tax rate for the district
Each taxpayer then pays taxes on:
 
The value of the parcels belonging to him/her
times
the tax rate for the district

The taxes are collected and given to the district and the process is done.
