A mill rate is the rate that's used to calculate your property tax. To calculate the property tax, multiply the assessment of the property by the mill rate and divide by 1,000. There are different mill rates for different towns and cities.
While people with general questions about the state's property taxes can contact the Office of Policy and Management, any inquiries about a tax bill or mill rate on real property, such as a home, or personal property, like a motor vehicle should go to the tax collector in the town in which the property is located.

Eligibility and key dates are discussed.
