If you live in the city limits of a city or town in the county of Wagoner, you would look at the first list titled “Cities/Towns”. Find the city in which you live and then scroll across the page. You will see how much the ad valorem levy is for the County General Fund, the County Health Fund, the sinking fund for cities and towns (based on debt service), the millage for the general school fund and then the millage for each school district’s general fund, building fund, and sinking fund as well as the general fund and building fund for the Vo-Tech districts. The final column has the total for all the levies. As look down the totals column, you can see where your city/town rates compared to the others in the County.
If you live in an unincorporated area, scroll down to where the heading is “School Districts”. Find the school district you live and then scroll across as above. You will find your total assessment in the “totals” column as well. You can compare how much your levy would increase if you moved in the city limits by noting the difference between the two different sections. For example, if you live in the city of Bixby your assessment rate is 111.34. If you live in the unincorporated area but within the Bixby school district, your assessment rate is 97.84. Several of the assessment rates for living in a city and living in the county are the same. The difference comes where the city/town entity has a sinking fund. Only three cities in Wagoner County have a sinking fund: Bixby, Broken Arrow, and Tulsa.
Another factor in your assessment rate is whether or not you live in a fire protection district that collects ad valorem taxes. The Fire Departments which are funded by ad valorem and their rates are listed at the bottom of the page.
