I think you have confused terms. The "tax base" is usually considered the amount per thousand of assessed value of a property. This figure does you absolutely no good in determining the taxes to be paid on any property for sale. If you work with a Realtor, they can tall you the assessed value and the taxes due for the current year. That's what you need to know. Most Realtors cannot tell the tax base amount for any town; it is not published in our standard data, because we really don't need to know.
If you are thinking of getting a property and changing the amount of taxes paid, my advice is to forget it. Taxes are assessed based on the town budget and individual taxes change only with a discovery that the assessment is unfair compared to your neighborsâ€™ assessments.
Hope this helps.
Best wishes on your house hunt.
Remember, there are essentially three values assigned to your home - Current Market Value, Townhip Assessed Value, and Appraised Value. In an ideal world, all three values would be equal, but is usually not the case.
