Dear Angel Mommy,

You can find the Pinellas County taxes for a specifific property here:

Just be careful that what the current owner pays may be significantly less than what you will pay. We have a
"Save our Homes" homestead provision that prevents the "assessed value" from increasing by more than 3% per year. Long time owners may show a much lower tax than you will pay.

Other counties may have lower property tax but you may end up paying higher homeowner insurance because of sinkhole problems. Also some planned communities charge an extra tax - Community Development District Tax in addition to Homeowners Association fees. This can add up to thousands of extra dollars.

If you would like to search properties on my site, there's no obligation and it will give you more details than most website. Click on the link below.

Hope this helps.

Property tax rates in Florida vary depending upon where the property is located. Property taxes can be set by a municipality (like Tarpon Springs) or the county where located (Pinellas). Best way to find out is to try some county property appraiser websites, for instance, for Tarpon Springs which is located in Pinellas County try: http://www.pcpao.org. Tax millage rate (mil rate) is just one variable that will pop up during your house search, best advice is to work with an agent that specializes in buyers.
