Who sets the tax rate or mill levy?

Tax rates are established by each individual taxing authority such as the schools, county, fire, water, sanitation, library, and recreation districts. The individual authorities that provide services to you are listed on your property tax statement. The assessor’s office has no control over the taxing authorities and their mill levies.
