Property Tax
Property taxes are assessed and collected by the local governments. County assessors of property appraises real estate for assessment purposes. The city governing body determines local property tax rates. The property taxes are collected by city collecting officials.

The State Board of Equalization establishes policies and procedures for local assessors of property and hears property appeals beyond the county level. The Division of Property Assessments, a division of the Comptroller of the Treasury, monitors the work of assessors to ensure proper procedures are followed, provide technical assistance during re-appraisal programs, and provide manuals and educational programs for use by assessors.

To Calculate Your Property Tax, multiply the appraised value by the assessment ratio for the property's classification; then multiply this sum times the tax rate which for Kimball is $0.10 for 2014.

The assessment ratio for the different classes of property is established by state law (residential and farm @ 25% of appraised value, 30% if your property is commercial personal property, commercial/industrial @ 40% of appraised value).

Beer Permits

The sale of alcoholic beverages is regulated by state and local laws. Beer permit applications may be picked up at City Hall. When returned the application must be accompanied by a $250 fee that is non-refundable. A background check will be made by the Police Chief.

The beer permit applicant must appear before the Board of Mayor and Aldermen for consideration of their request for a beer permit. The application process can be lengthy so applicants should apply well before opening their business or purchasing an existing business.

Beer permits are not transferable and a new owner cannot operate under a previous owner's license. Stocking beer (actually holding beer on property you own or operate) without a beer permit is a violation of the beer permit law and could result in denial of an application for a permit. Beer permits are due on January 1 each year and are $100. Failure to renew a beer permit within the first month can result in denying a permit. New beer permits are prorated according to the time issued.
