    I have a few houses in Philadelphia, nothing all that expensive, they're all worth between 75-100k, taxes run between $525. per year to about $800, but if you go a few miles north to the suburbs, they quadruple, or across the bridge to new jersey, they are several grand at least.

    House in Allison Park, PA (about 12 miles north of Pittsburgh). Assessed at $107,900. Total taxes (County, Municipality, School*) about $3,250 per year.
    The school tax is the killer, about $2,400.

    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.

    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:cool: .

    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.
