Never trust the listing when it comes to property taxes. I'd recommend that you visit Town Hall or County Clerk's office to verify property taxes on ANY property you are seriously interested in purchasing. The MLS Listing has a disclaimer about the accuracy of the information presented, including and especially with regard to property taxes.
If the home is located in an Incorporated Village in Suffolk or Nassau Counties then be sure to visit Village Hall, too. Incorporated Villages have their own property tax assessments on top of County and School Taxes.
I can't tell you how many times throughout my career as a Mortgage Banker my clients have discovered the true property taxes (usually HIGHER) after they made an Offer or signed a contract to purchase a home.
