The tax rate is obtained by dividing the amount of the taxes be raised by the cost of the property. Then, multiply the quotient by 100%. The operations are shown below,
                                ($13,750,000) / ($305,000,000) x 100%
The answer is approximately equal to 4.5%. Thus, the answer is letter B.
