The "Simple" Levy Process

  1. The levy process has two players, taxpayers and tax districts. 

  2. We need one important piece of information about each player.  The value of the taxpayer's property and the budget of the taxing district.

  3. We take the amount of money needed by the district (their budget) and divide by the value of all the taxpayers' parcels in that district.

  4. This equals the tax rate for the district. 

  5. Each taxpayer then pays taxes on the value of their parcels times the tax rate for the district.  The taxes are collected by the Treasurer and distributed to the district.
