Market value:

The selling price of a property

The assessed value is a percent of the market value

A House has a market value of 220,000. The assessed value of the house is 70%. If the tax rate is \$2 per \$100, how much is the property tax?

Assessed value = Market value × rate of assessment = 220,000 × 0.70 = 154000

The assessed value in hundreds is 154000/100
