Your Questions About Where Are The Lowest Property Taxes

June 6, 2012

Ruth asks…

What state has the lowest property taxes?

After 20 years in the Military moving from state to state and country to country and after working overseas as a civilian for the last 10 years were ready to settle down and retire. We are now looking for a state to retire to that has low property taxes, not too cold of a climate, reasonably price homes, low crime and a city no larger than 500,000 people. We do not have any kids in school so the school system is not important to us. We lived in Texas and the property taxes are high, also lived in Georgia where the property taxes are not to bad. If we had a $250,000 home in your area what would the property taxes be?

Where are the lowest property tax rates in Texas?

2-3% is what Ive seen in most places. What part of Texas has lower property tax rates?

Administrator answers:

You are going to have to look outside the cities into the counties. The city property taxes are much higher.

Any information appreciated thanks!

Taxes are yearly, all states.

You can get a nice 3 bedroom for 300k in the central valley, such as Fresno or Merced.

Florida is not cheap, but cheaper then CA.

Ken asks…

lowest property taxes in Houston?

i’m wanting to buy a home in Houston and wanted to know where the lowest taxes are. i know Stafford has no property taxes and it seems like the Heights has pretty high taxes. is there any place i can check this kind of information or do you have any insight?
@ simpson – that i do
but how is it the Stafford has no property taxes when it resides in Fort Bend and Harris county?

Administrator answers:

The majority of Property Taxes are county based, not city based. So, if Harris County has high property taxes and Fort Bend County does not, then obviously you look for housing in Fort Bend County.

Sounds like you need a good real estate agent to help you with the local tax system.
