Johnson County releases valuation and tax levy information for 2022 budgets
Somir Hassan, Interim Johnson County Clerk, today, Nov. 2, released valuation and tax levy information for the 2022 Johnson County budgets. The 2021 mill levies and valuations are available on the Records and Tax Administration Abstract/Mill Levy webpage. Records and Tax Administration is a division of Johnson County’s Treasury, Taxation and Vehicles department.
“Calculating and publishing the annual tax abstract is an important part of our annual taxation performed by the county clerk,” said Tom Franzen, Johnson County Treasury, Taxation and Vehicles director. “This now allows the treasurer to create tax bills, which will be mailed out in the near future.”
