They are expensive in relation to areas where home cost much more. The only explanation I have is towns and cities must pay their bills, so they take there budget and divide by the number of home owners and determine a $$ figure per $100 value and back into it. I know it sounds silly. A lot of it has to do with other revenue, from sales tax, businesses etc, generally the more business you have the lower other taxes will be. I moved from the DC area so I understand what you are saying, my Moms house is worth twice mine here but my taxes are higher??
