Determining tax rates
- Neither the Douglas County Board of Equalization (BOE) nor the Douglas County Assessor/Register of Deeds are responsible for establishing the tax rate. The BOE only considers matters of valuation and/or equalization.
- Tax rates are established by units of local government that have taxing authority (i.e. school districts, community colleges, cities, counties, natural resource districts, SIDs, etc.) The BOE does not have the authority to make adjustments in the property tax rate.
