Can you tell me more about the specifics of the property you are using this information for comparison? more to the point, what is the purpose of the question?
As Angela stated, the range is quite wide, and to get the answer you are looking for, more data is needed.

Sharia,

Again, huge range here. From under $1000 for an older home with a senior freeze to the newer homes on Oakenwald with $10,000 tax bills.

Best,

The average is going to be a little deceptive; but the range recently has typically been between $2500 to $3500./year. However, if the property was not owner occupied (i.e., it was owned by a developer/investor) the taxes might be double, because the current owner is not getting the benefit of a homeowner's tax exemption. Similarly, those properties with taxes that are on the low end of the range might be benefiting from a different type of tax exemption that will not apply to the buyer/new owner, as would be the case if a senior citizen (or the estate of one) sells a home where the owner had a senior exemption. Each home is going to have different circumstances: exemptions; other interior & exterior property features/improvements that have/have not been reported for valuation; owners who have filed an appeal and requested a reassessment of their property value.
