Property Tax

A tax on the value of land or improvements (i.e. buildings). Occasionally, property taxes are levied on personal property, such as automobiles or securities, as well. All property taxes are calculated as a percentage of the value of the property. In the United States, most property taxes are levied at the city or county levels, and are used for municipal improvements, such as roads or snow removal. Municipalities can issue bonds that are secured by the proceeds on property taxes.
