You received the correct answers, divide by 365 days. $4.91 per day. Best Regards. Sellers rarely waive the prorated amount.

You'll be responsible for only the prorated amount. Depending on the situation and what is written in the purchase agreement, there is a way to ask the sellers to waive the prorations. If they agree, you won't have to pay back any of the tax prorations.

Talk to your local agent about this.

Property taxes should always be prorated to the date of sale, you only pay taxes for the time you actually own the house, so not to worry. You would be wise to start looking now, while interest rates are at historic lows. Nobody knows how long that will last, so don't worry about property taxes, now go find your new home!
