Local Taxes


All businesses in Mississippi are subject to property taxes. These taxes are levied by three main taxing entities; cities, school boards and counties.

 

Property Tax

Counties and municipalities levy a property tax on real and tangible personal property in Mississippi. Generally, property is assessed at 15% of true value. This assessed value is then multiplied by the millage rate to determine the annual tax liability. Each city and/or county sets its tax rate, or millage. Mississippi does not have a state property tax.

 

Property Tax Example

Assume the following facts:

  • A manufacturing plant is located within a municipality where the total of all taxes is 78.5 mills.
  • The true value of the taxable property is:

  

Land $10,000
Machinery and Equipment $700,000
Buildings $1,500,000
Raw Materials $200,000
Finished Goods $500,000
Total $2,910,000
  • The assessed value is calculated by multiplying the total by 15% (15% x $2,910,000) =
    $436,500
  •  The tax liability, before any exemptions, is calculated by multiplying the assessed value by the millage:
    ($436,500 x .0785) = $34,265
