Tax Rate

The current tax rate in Milford is $0.46 per $100 of assessed value.  To determine what your taxes will be use the following formula: 

Assessed Value x .0046 = Taxes

The tax year runs October 1 through September 30 of the following year.  Annual tax bills are mailed in August and due in September.   

Assessments and Appeals

Assessments are performed quarterly, in January, April, July and October, and adjusted/corrected bills are mailed out accordingly. After each quarterly assessment property owners will be notified of any assessment changes to their property by receiving a Notice of Change In Assessment.

The deadline to file a petition to appeal your assessment is 30 days from the issuance of a Notice of Change in Assessment and informal appeal reviews take place quarterly with formal appeals annually.

Using your Notice of Change in Assessment letter, find the date the Petition of Appeal is due and use that date to file the correct form:

Petition of Appeal Due April 30, 2021

Why Did I Receive A Notice of Change In Assessment?

Typically a change in assessment occurs when a change on the property takes place, i.e. an addition is built, a house is demolished, property is annexed, acreage is corrected.  If you have a question about your assessment, please contact Carol Scott at 302-422-6616 ext 1204.
