Up here in Victoria, BC I run about $1500/year for a 9000 square foot lot and a 1967 1500 square foot rancher.

600k home, 74' x 170' lot size: 11,500 taxes per year. And that's not even considered terrible in this area. Welcome to New Jersey.

How many sq feet is your 600k home?

The real problem with this "comparison" is:

1. The very same house may be valued differently at a different location
2. The land value is unknown
3. The taxes may only be assessed at a percentage of the appraised value
4. The appraised value may be old
5. Some states have "homestead" exemptions that lower tax bills
6. Even looking at the millage rate ($ per $1000 of assessed value) doesn't always tell the story.

Sometimes it's very difficult to see why there are such great differences in property taxes. I've seen 1200 sq ft homes with property taxes of over $20,000 as well as ones with taxes of $250

That's a good question, I dont know exactly. We just got under contract for it today. Had the inspection today as well. It's a big house. 1899 Colonial, 3 floors 6 bedrooms plus a basement. I'll post the sq footage when I know it.

The area is nice and the school systems are supposedly very good so the taxes are rather high. At least in my opinion.

1906 farmhouse on 6 acres about two miles off the main street of a small city (pop 11,000) in the Finger Lakes,NY. Beautiful lot, needs work, though...

Got lucky and paid less than the assessed value of 100K. Well, that's why I'm here, to fix this place up and build equity in it...With STAR and vet's bennies I pay about 2,000. Really, I could be paying double if the "man" catches up to me .

2006 assessment said $227K (land and building total). 2005 tax bill was $3,900. Near Madison, Wisconsin. Paid $186K for the house 2.5 years ago...I think my taxes are about to go up!

I have a 2300 sq. ft. home that is in a very desirable area and I pay $1200 a year in property tax. Homes in my area are selling for about $125 per sq. ft. average, so I believe we have low property taxes.
