Property tax as a percentage of its assessed value = 8%
Increase in assessed value of the property = 24000 - 20000 = 4,000 $

Increase in property tax = (8/100)* 4000 = 320 $

Answer C

(A) $32
(B) $50
(C) $320
(D) $400
(E) $500

Increase in house value = $24,000 - $20,000 = $4000
So, tax increase = 8% of $4000

Shortcut: I know that 10% of $4000 = $400
So, 8% of $4000 will be a LITTLE BIT LESS THAN $400
Answer: C

Cheers,
Brent

= 8% of ( 24,000 - 20,000 )

= 8% of 4,000

= 320

Hence, The correct answer will be (C) $320
