About Property Taxes
Property taxes are assessed by local municipalities to pay for things such as local public schools, parks, and other municipal expenses. It can be confusing to estimate your new property taxes when buying a home.

When you buy a home, the property taxes are typically assessed based on the purchase price. You could end up paying significantly higher property taxes than the previous owner, especially if the previous owner has lived in the home for years and the taxable value is less than the purchase price.

For example, let's say that the previous owner has owned the house for 20 years and the taxable value is $290,000. However, the house is worth much more, and you pay $725,000. In this scenario, your new taxable value could be $725,000, and if the tax rate is 2%, the new tax bill could be $14,500/year even though the previous owner paid just $5,800.

Understanding the Tax Bill
Many times, a property is accessed at 50% of the value of a property. The taxable value often has a cap on the amount that it can increase but this depends on the municipality. This is why long time home owners often have taxable values much less than assessed values.

The millage rate is a number used by local governments to assess taxes. It is expressed as a dollar amount for every $1,000 in taxable value. For example, 40 mills would equal $40 in property taxes for every $1,000 of taxable value. So for a home with a taxable value of $362,500, a rate of 40 mills would have property taxes of $14,500.
Assessed Value Value that the assessor gives to the property. This is usually less than the actual value of the home.
Taxable Value The value that is used to calculate property taxes.
Mills or Millage Rate Expressed as dollars per $1,000 of taxable value.
