Inflation Rate Multiplier/C.P.I. Information 2

BULLETIN 11 of 2016 -  Inflation Rate Multiplier (aka CPI)

Including a list of IRM rates since the implementation of Proposal A (1995).

Each year, state constitution requires an inflation rate be calculated to be used for property tax purposes. State uses the Federal Consumer Price Index to set the rate. For property tax assessments that will be approved in March, the official inflation factor will be .9 percent (1.009). This will impact any property that is increasing in value or where there is a difference between taxable value and state equalized value (SEV).

2017 Capped Value Formula as follows:
2017 CAPPED VALUE = (2016 Taxable Value – LOSSES) X 1.009 + ADDITIONS
Calculation Example: No transfer/uncapping, or losses or additions:
2016 Base Taxable Value $100,000 x 1.009 = $100,900=Tentative 2017 Taxable Value
