Throughout the State of California, due to Property 13, all residential property taxes are determined on the sale price of the property. This price determines the tax basis which is generally 1.25%. There are exceptions for areas with a Mello-Roos improvement bond. Taxes are also capped at increasing annually no more than 2%.

The question appeared to be for the city of San Francisco... property taxes here are 1.141% of the purchase price for the 2007-2008 tax year. http://www.sfgov.org/site/treasurer_page.asp?id=8099

Taxes are paid 50% twice per year. The first installment is due no later than Dec 10th, and the 2nd by April 10th. You can pay online at https://services.sfgov.org/ptx/intro.asp
