Residence of Battle Ground received information about the 2009 property tax rates for Clark County from the City of Battle Ground in their mail boxes yesterday. Naturally, I just have to share this information.
The City of Battle Ground reported the lowest rate per $1,000 of assessed property value in Clark County is, DRUM ROLE PLEASE…
Ridgefield! With a rate of 7.63 per $1000 assessed value
Second Place goes to Battle Ground at a rate of $7.64
Clark County $8.78
La Center $9.52
And the highest property tax rate reported in Clark County goes to:
Camas at $12.21 per $1000 assessed value. (Camas is known for having excellent schools.)
This means if a house located in Vancouver is assessed at $275,000, you divide 275,000 by 1000 and multiply the answer by the tax rate to get the annual property tax rate.
275,000/1000 = 275 x 9.80 = $2695.00 total property tax due for $2009
