The ability of the City to maintain a good balance between residential and commercial valuation helps reduce the property tax burden for residents. The City's strategic use of the homestead exemption in the FY 2020 budget has resulted in a rebalancing of the tax burden, as the FY 2019 results will show that the Commercial Assessed Value is 31.5% for the 2019 Tax Year.
