Good afternoon Barbara. Property taxes vary, and are based on the individual property. There are numerous factors that make up a properties total tax amount. Some factors that influence a properties taxes include lot size, upgrades, and other improvements made to the home. In Port Jefferson, or anywhere on Long Island, for that matter--taxes for one property may be $7,000. However, for another property of a different caliber, but on the same block, may be $12,000.
I think that you should narrow your search, to meet your "tax" criteria, if you are looking in Port Jefferson or in any neighborhood. Taxes play a big role in the decision making process, so deep consideration should be taken into account. Once you have found a property that you truly like, you should always verify taxes by contacting the local tax assessors office.
I hope this answered your question! If you have any further questions, please feel free to contact me by the ways below.
Wishing you all the best,
