Assessment Ratio

A ratio of a property's assessed valuation to its market value. An assessed valuation is the value of a property as determined by an appraisal conducted by a municipality. The market value is the price for which one can sell a property on the open market. For example, if the assessed valuation of a piece of real estate is $180,000 and its market value is $200,000, its assessment ratio is 0.90, or 90%. The assessment ratio is used to determine one's property tax liability.
