If you mean "neighborhoods" as in Cities and LA as in LA County then yes and no. There are slight variations in taxes from City to City within LA County.

Hi
Property values are allocated by the value of the homes in it, so the higher the value the higher the property tax. property taxes are increased 2% every year after the purchase date. Below is a link to give you a little more in depth information about it.

Well yes,property taxes are evaluated on the worth of the property, so in high income areas, property taxes are also high.
California's tax on real estate, is 1 percent of the property's base value. The property tax base is increased 2 percent each year after purchase.
Improvements will have change the value and the tax,when the property is sold or transferred from one owner to another, the tax base will be reassessed at 1 percent of the selling price. So if the improvements increased value..taxes will go up.
