What is the difference between 'Estimated Market Value' and 'Taxable Market Value'?

While estimated market value (EMV) shows what your property would likely sell for on the open market, "taxable market value" (TMV) is used to determine your taxes.


A property's TMV is its estimated market value minus any tax exemptions, deferrals and value exclusions that apply. For example, some homeowners have a Homestead Market Value Exclusion, which reduces the amount of home value that is subject to tax.
