I would also suggest visiting Chatham County's tax assessor site, but with a caveat. The taxes noted on properties as paid recently may well reflect the current owner's "Homestead Exemption". Once the home is sold the tax base may rise based on the new assessment. The best way to calculate what the actual taxes would be on a particular property is using the property's "fair market value" (40% of it is used in the calculation) & the current millage rate.
Also of importance in calculating the property taxes on a specific piece of property is whether it is in the unincorporated areas of Chatham County or within the Savannah City limits. In the unincorporated areas only County taxes apply, inside the City limits County AND City taxes may apply.
Really the best way to find out the answer to this & other questions specific to a property is to contact a local Realtor who you find to be knowledgeable & trustworthy & allow them research & answer your questions & guide you in your overall home purchase. Hope this has been helpful!

RC:
Looks like your search is in the Savannah area. Try going to the Chatham County web-site at http://www.chathamcounty.org/assessor.html and pull the property record card. Also, the assessed value is not a number that you'd want to use to determine fair market value, however a local Realtor could get you that information by doing a CMA or BPO for you. Hope this helps you out some. - Steve

Without specific location information, we can't give you an answer. A local real estate agent can provide you answers to both questions. You can conduct an Internet search to find out what the current property taxes are for a particular home. Depending on how the tax collector's site is set up, you may need the assessor's parcel number to get the information. Some tax collector sites also allow you to search by address. Just remember, the property tax will change upon change of ownership.
