Some people feel choosing a neighborhood based on taxes is stupid, but I think it is smart to know what your committing yourself to financially. In the city of Austin the tax rates keep going up and these are not fixed costs and a home buyer should know what they are signing up for. I sold my last home in Austin because the taxes had gone up to $1100 a month, when I bought the house it was only $300 a month. I say a smart home-buyer will know the facts before you buy. I wish you the best of luck on your home purchase.

It's all about the cost of building the infrastructure to support the neighborhood, the age of the neighborhood, and if in a different school district, the biggest difference may be the cost of education.
A newer community often has the highest tax base because they had to build out the road and utilities infrastructure using todays material and labor costs. Over time, most new community taxes will subside, given a conservative governance.
