Taxes in Tucson, which is in Pima County, are actually quite low compared to the national average. We are roughly 1.25% of the assessed value. This valuation is down by the county assessor Bill Staples and his team.
In comparison to California, our taxes are much lower and so is our cost of living! What most people don't realize is that you are able to fight your tax valuation and often get it lowered. I would be more than happy to direct you to some great resources. Even better, it often does not cost you a dime out of pocket. I hope that this information has helped and strongly suggest you partner with a local Realtor that can guide you through the process and answer any questions. Please take a look at my profile and past client reviews and I would be more than happy to discuss your endeavors.

It is difficult to answer this question without knowing what you are referring to. Are you looking at properties with some acreage involved? If you are, some of the homes may have just enough land for the home itself. I found a current example with 4.77 acres, priced at $550,000 & taxed at $4636. A home for sale just around the corner is listed at $399,000 with taxes of $9106. That's because this home is on a 14.8 acre lot, enough to split the parcel into four separate parcels, with four homes. The land is appraised at $647,100, while the land in the first example is appraised at $0.
I'd love to have more information- I'm very curious! Feel free to contact me through Trulia or directly at the information below.
