The taxes here are listed on the Trulia listing info. I believe it said $4743. Go to the Farmington website, click on Assessor, click on Land Record Search, follow the prompts and look at the property. It will tell you everything you need to know since it is public info.

To determine the taxes:
Appraisal amount x 70% = assessment amount
assessment amount reduced to 100's x mil rate = taxes

Example:
350,000 x 70% = 245,000
245,000 reduced to 100's = 245.000
245.000 x 24.0 (supposed mil rate) = 5880.00
5880.00 = taxes

Please know that the town's appraised amount and the assessed value are not determinants of market value. If you truly believe your market value is LESS THAN the town's appraised and assessed value they have on record, have an appraisal done and bring it to the assessor. You may be able to lower your tax obligation. They may also deny your request. If you are looking to purchase a home and you see the appraised and assessed amounts are lower than the asking price that IS NOT a valid reason to argue the seller should lower their price. Market price is different. Remember: the town may have gone through a town assessment years prior. Appraisals are only good for 6 months because the market conditions change. Towns can not afford to go through an assessment every 6 months.

Taxes are 4,280 per year, the water is well and the sewer is public connected. Do you have concerns regarding well or septic, if so I am happy to answer them and provide you any information regarding them. Also, if you would like to see this home, I would be happy to show it to you. Happy New Year.
