What is my "fair share" of property tax?

The property tax is designed as an "ad valorem" tax, which means it is a tax based on the value of the property. An owner of a $1,000,000 property should pay twice as much in taxes as the owner of a $500,000 property. The market value of property is the standard that is used to determine one's fair share.
