Table PD-30 shows total assessed value of, and taxes levied on, real, public utility personal, and tangible personal property for taxes payable in calendar year 1987. Taxes for real and public utility personal property were levied in tax year 1986, but payable in calendar year 1987. Special assessments were also levied in tax year 1986 and payable in calendar year 1987. In contrast, personal property taxes (excluding public utility personal property) are levied and payable in the same year - in this case 1987.

Total taxes levied on the three categories of property were $6.0 billion on a total assessed value of $100.9 billion. Special assessments totalled $101.1 million.

Total real property taxes levied were $4.5 billion, while public utility personal property and tangible personal property taxes totalled $563.5 million and $964.9 million, respectively.

The value of real property was $73.8 billion compared to $10.3 billion and $16.9 billion for public utility personal and tangible personal property, respectively.
