Modified Assessed Value
|This line is unchanged from prior years. The modified assessed value is the total assessed value of a municipality minus some specific exemptions.|
The modified assessed value is used to calculate the total equalized valuation for each municipality.
|The total assessed valuation for a municipality minus the value of exemptions.|
This figure includes the entire value of the TIF properties both the original assessed values and the captured assessed value whether retained or unretained.
Less TIF Retained Value
|The portion of captured assessed value that will be used for the retirement of bonds and/or the operation of the TIF district.|
The “unretained” value is the excess captured assessed value which is not used for the retirement of bonds or the operation of the TIF district and is returned to the tax lists. These monies are not to be deducted on Line 21B.
Net Valuation Adjusted to Remove TIF Value
|The Net Valuation minus the TIF retained value. If a municipality is not retaining any value for the retirement of bonds or the operation of the TIF district, Lines 21A and 21C will be the same.|
This figure is used to calculate the municipal, county and local school tax rates.
|The assessed value of utilities as reported on Line 3A of this report.|
Net Valuation without Utilities Adjusted to Remove TIF Retained Value
