In addition to the answer below: the taxes are used for government spending, so less government spending will reduce the taxes needed. Where do you want the spending cut? Ask your government representative to make that cut. Good luck with that.

Your taxes are based on your assessed value in conjunction with the values for your entire community.
Lot size is not as important as the improvements on the lot.

If you feel you are over assessed you can contact your municipality. However the time frame for contesting assessments is over for 2012 but you can begin the process for next year.
