# Calculating Taxes

## Example

How to calculate your real estate taxes example:

- This example illustrates a residential property in the City of Bryan with a market value of $100,000.
- To compute the taxable or assessed value, multiply the market value (1) times 35%.
- To compute the gross taxes, divide the taxable rate ($79.45) by 1000 and multiply the factor by the taxable value ($35,000).
- Multiply the gross taxes by the reduction factor of 31.8178 to compute the tax reduction.
- Subtract the tax reduction from the gross taxes to compute the taxes before non-business and owner occupancy credits.
- Multiply the total from step 5 by 8.5457% to compute the non-business credit.
- Multiply the total from step 5 by 2.1364.5% to compute the owner occupancy Credit.
- Subtract the amounts computed in steps 6 and 7 from the total computed in step 5 to compute the net taxes due.
