What is a mill levy?
A mill levy is a tax rate that is applied to the assessed value of a property. This rate is used to generate revenue to cover annual expenses for local area services including public schools, fire departments, open space, road and bridge, social services, libraries, water and sanitation, hospital, ambulance, general funds, and so forth.

One mill = 0.001
If your mill levy is 45, then divide by 1,000 for tax rate.
