According to Wikipedia, a millage is "an ad valorem tax levy on the value of property that the owner of the property is required to pay to a government in which the property is situated."
Note: The latin words ad valorem mean "to the value"; an ad valorem tax is based on the value of a property. And levy means "to impose or collect tax".
