Dear Pb

I am interested in buying a home in Solaire, but unable to get an exact estimate of property tax for this community. I request you to provide help as you appears to already own a home there.

How much is the property tax charged as special taxes for this community ? This should appear as multiple items on the left side of your tax bill (including DSRSD-DRTY VLY01-1) and typically (Gale ranch) it should be in the range of $1850. This should be in addition to TOTAL AD VALOREM TAXES - which is always 1.0875% of the property assessed value.
