Property Taxes

The Board of County Commissioners and other taxing entities set a property tax rate called a “millage rate”, which is used to calculate your overall property taxes. A “mill” is equal to $1 of tax for every $1,000 of assessed property value. The biggest challenge to Union County is the limited tax base. It is the smallest county in the State, so the amount of land available to tax is less than any other county. Furthermore, a large portion of the land is not subject to tax because it is owned by the Florida Department of Corrections.
