The taxes collected are used to fund the board of county commissioners and the five constitutional officers including the tax collector, property appraiser, clerk of the court, supervisor of elections and sheriff. Property taxes are charged in “mills” and the amount paid is based on the value of the property. A mil is equal to $1 per $1,000 of value.
