Hi Leonard,
First, take the sales price, next subtract any homestead amount that you may have. Divide that number by 1000. Multiply that number by the current tax rate; to get you yearly taxes. I live in Cape Coral and our rate is 17.34 . You can also go to http://www.leepa.org Search property data base for the home your thinking about buying. Once you are on that home's page look at the top right it says tax estimator click on that a new window opens up punch in sales price and it will do the rest. I hope this was helpful.

Taxes are based on millage. For Cape Coral, you may go to the following web site:

Also, of course, there are exemptions, such as the Homestead Exemption, the Widow's Exemption, which will be subtracted from the assessed value of your property. For more information, please feel free to contact me. I cover the Cape Coral and Fort Myers areas of Southwest Florida.

You need to look on your County's web site to see the rate per dollar. Every county is different. Your local real estate agent can help you if you can not find this out. Or call the county on the property yourself

Well that question is dependant on where the home is and how it is held. For instance, a 200K home in Pasco County will be taxed at a lower rate than a 200K home in the CITY OF TAMPA, in Hillsborough County, additionally if the property is homesteaded that will make a difference. Can you give us more information about the house?

At a minimum the county or zip code, and is it a homestead property. Then we should be able to get you some better answers. Also your county Tax collector should have a website that will assist you in this question.
