I live in Falls Village and bought a house here two years ago... I was told taxes are higher because of the school system. There is also a terrific library. Typically, when towns provide "services"... taxes are higher. I don't enjoy paying higher taxes, but I "overlooked" these taxes because I love this town. Very pretty village, friendly, convenient. And I have a great house.
Let me know if i can help.
All the best,
