Property taxes are what pay your share of state and local government services, which are used to support a variety of valuable resources and functions of Butler County and its cities, townships and schools.
The Butler County Treasurer collects taxes for all entities of local and state government in Butler County and distributes the funds to the appropriate entities (e.g., schools, cities, townships, and the state).
Each entity has a governing body which sets a budget, paid in part through your share of local property taxes.
The amount you owe to each entity is calculated by multiplying the entity's tax levy by the assessed value of your property.
Essentially, your tax bill is a result of how much taxes are levied by each entity and what percent of the total assessed value your property accounts for within each entity.
