Will the sale of the property trigger a tax increase?
The assessed value of the property may increase based on the amount you pay for the property.
Is the amount of taxes paid comparable to other properties in the area?
If not, it might be possible to appeal the tax assessment and lower the rate.
Does the current tax bill reflect any special exemptions that I might not qualify for?
For example, some tax districts offer reductions to those 65 or over. It never hurts to ask. Contact the County Tax Assessor
