The local tax town assessors are a very good resource for taxes and I also find them a great source of overall information about the community itself. But the best place is with a local Realtor .
We have access to a great deal of information and are happy to work with you as well...

Hi Catherine,

If you are looking for general information, the Saratoga County Real Property Tax office is a good resource. The town assessors are also good resources. The City of Saratoga Springs has begun placing tax information for every parcel in the city on their website. Finally, as Realtors we have access to online tax data which we use to serve our clients.

Definitely contact a real estate professional to help you find tax information from the town assessor. While it is very nice to pick out "dream" homes while searching for a new residence, PLEASE DO heed tax amounts!!! They can mean the difference between affording that house you love or it being out of your budget.

Good luck and thank you for using Trulia!

You can check the Saratoga County GIS website. Find the property and then click "identify". Lots of information there. It shows the property value and town/county tax, but not school taxes. You could probably call the school district and ask them what their per $1000 rate is and calculate it from there.

Though that list offered is helpful, it is not correct. The numbers are not including special district charges and such. Ignore it.

As Kathleen said, ask a professional. Either a Real Estate Agent, or an Assessor. The Assessor will have far more accurate figures, the Real Estate agent will have far greater areas to pool general rates from.

Either way, your first concern in buying a home should not be the taxes. Buy a home firstly because you WANT to live there. 30 years of misery will never justify saving money. Once you find a home you think you'll like, then call an Agent or an Assessor for taxes.

Hi,
The easiest way is to contact your Real Estate Professional with the particular property or location you are interested in. Below is a link where you enter the county & then the value of the home. These do not include the Star exemption. Please feel free to contact me anytime to discuss this further as there are other exemptions you should be aware of.
