Village Taxes:


***How much of my property tax goes to the village? The current millage for the Village of Fredericksburg is 12.10. This means that $12.10 of tax is levied on each $1000.00 of assessed property value. Properties are assessed at 35% of the market value. So a $100,000 house is assessed at $35,000 for tax purposes. Thus, the village should receive $423.50 each year from a $100,000 property within its limits; but that would be before figuring in reductions and credits. Once all reductions and credits are figured in that amount generally would drop to around $210-$260 depending on property type. Additionally, due to Ohio Laws, a municipality generally cannot collect more money than the amount that was certified by the auditor when the levy was placed on the ballot. So, even though your property value may increase, the amount paid to the village may not increase. To get to the point, if the average property in the village was worth $100,000, and there were approximately 250 properties in the village, the village should receive about $50,000 per year from property taxes. In actuality what the village receives is closer to half of that.***
