Tax rates or millage levies are set by procedures established in the Oklahoma Constitution or voted directly by the taxpayers. Rates are not set by the County Assessor. There are over 37 different rates in Comanche County and those vary across the county depending on which school district, city limit and vocational-technical school district the property is located. The tax or millage rate levied against a property makes a great deal of difference in the taxes paid.

The method to figure ad valorem taxes requires 4 steps:

  1. You must know the taxable market value of the property
  2. Multiply the taxable market value by the assessment ratio (11.25% for both real and personal property)
  3. Exclude any exemption amounts
  4. Multiply by the millage levy of the area you reside in.

You are required to notify the Assessor's office and the Treasurer's office

A mil is 1/10 of a cent. For property assessment purposes, it is $1 for every $1,000 valued. The tax rate is the sum off all mills levied. For convenience, Oklahoma expresses the tax rate as dollars per thousand dollars of assessed value. A tax rate of 80 mills. For example, would be 80 tax dollars.

The Treasurer's Office sends out the tax bill in November. If you do not receive your tax statement by the end of November, contact the Treasurer's Office at 580-355-5763

Property Taxes are distributed between local schools, vocational/technical schools, libraries, and city and county government. Generally, local schools receive the largest share of the property tax, followed by the city bond issues, county government, vocational/technical shools, libraries, and city/county health departments.
