How much is property tax in Alabama?

Alabama property tax rate are due on Oct. 1 of each year and any taxes unpaid as of Dec. 31 are considered delinquent. Taxes are based on property’s value, although actual millage rates apply to “assessed” value, which varies depending on the primary use of the property.

For residential property, the assessed value is 10% of the appraised, or market, value. So, for example, a home with an appraised value of $200,000 would have an assessed value of $20,000 (10% of $200,000). If that home was subject to a total property tax rate of 30 mills, the total annual property tax would be $600 ($20,000 x [30 / 1000]).
