Auburnâ€™s school budget took effect July 1. About $15.4 million would come from property taxes, which will increase about 5 percent this year. That means a homeowner with property valued at $150,000 would pay $66 more in taxes for the year.
I can't speak about a specific home without know more, but some reasons taxes can double are additions, new construction, improvements to the existing home. Also not that the taxes would double, but some communities like Brookline have homeowner tax exemptions as there is a high percentage of rental property.
