What to do?
1) Check if moving into the next taxing jurisdiction lowers taxes on a home in your price range.
2) Call the taxing authority or assessment office and see if there is a chance of contesting a high tax. Sometimes you can get an adjustment. (ask your Realtor if you don't know where to call.)
3) Make sure you take note of current tax structure when you decide on the house you will buy.
Best wishes in your house hunting.
I hope that helps!
