A ball park number is $1500 per year but in my opinion that has no value as an accurate number. It depends on so may things, age of home, flood zone, hurricane windows or not, location, which carrier, the list is endless. Best to take the example (address of the property in question) and get an estimate from the carrier(s) of your choice. If it is an older home (over 40 yrs.) it will likely end up with the insurer of last resort, Citizens. Good luck....Shawn ... more

Hi Janet,

I agree with you... our politicians appear to be working for the "best interests" of the insurance companies and not their constituents!

Shop around... try AAA.com

All my best,
Alma

Hello Kyluh:
Proerty taxes are actually beginning to come down a little, with the reduction in property values, and for anyone in the area DON'T FORGET: Sept. 18th is the deadline to protest your property assessment!!!
If you haven't seen an assessor in your yard lately, well, that could mean it's time for a review of your proeprty value--it could make a difference in your taxes!

Back to the question--tax rates are all available online through the various county sites--in the Tri-County area (Pinellas, Pasco, and Hillsborough) where I live and work, the rates vary quite dramatically--Pasco is the lowest, at generally under .15 mil, whereas Pinellas and Hillsborough have much higher rates--over .20.

Check Pinellas here (the site does not like IE--use Firefox): http://www.pcpao.org/
Pasco: http://appraiser.pascogov.com/
Hillsborough: http://www.hcpafl.org/

Hope this helps!
