The property will be reassessed at the purchase price as of the date of the sale. the base tax is 1% of the purchase price. However, that doesn't include additional assessments or charges that are over and above the base tax such as mosquito abatement, school bonds/assessments, sanitary/sewer district assessments, etc. etc. which usually end up being approximately an additional .2-.25%. The lenders typically calculate 1.25% per year.

Also, if you take the purchase price and knock three zeroes off, you will get an approximate cost of taxes per month. For rough estimates only.
Hope this helps!
