Generally taxes are 1.25% of the selling price of a home. Then this and that can get added to the bill.
If you think your tax bill is too high and you would like the tax assessor to reconsider
your tax base you can get me or one of my Realtor friends to pull comps for you and then you can fill out the form that asks for a reconsideration on taxes. If the house next door to you just sold it doesn't matter that they pay in taxes unless it's exactly like yours. You need to look at houses within a mile of your, similar in size and close to the year built. Also you need comps from Jan. of the tax year you are asking for the reconsideration. It's not hard for one of us to get the information for you.
Happy to help if you want it.
