    What is your total property tax rate?

    The new police station bond measure will come before voters in Marshalltown this August. If passed it would increase the average property tax bill by 4%

    My question for you is this - what is your total property tax bill each year as a percentage of your home's value?

    Mine is about 2.2%.

    Re: What is your total property tax rate?

    Just punched mine into the calculator. Here in Golden Valley, MN (first suburb west of downtown Mpls) it's 1.58%. About 1/3 is city, 1/3 county, 1/3 school levee and other local levees. Higher property values make the actual cash American amount a pretty hefty outlay especially since the assessed values are back to pre mortgage crisis levels. During that period I had no intention of selling and moving so was fine with being undervalued and saving some tax dollars. That's way over, at least here.

    Ran my house value through an online calculator and it's pretty much equivalent to the property taxes for homestead in Mpls.


    I was dreamin' when I wrote this, forgive me if it goes astray.

    As a percentage of the higher values the tab can get high. My bill for 2016 is $6k. Across the street the rich elderly couple is paying $13k. The interactive county map and property data stuff lets you look the public data up. Kinda cool for checking out the assessed values in your own neighborhood.

    And all these people with similar or lower rates are getting a lot more and better services... that they actually use. The price we pay for living in a poverty district. On the good side, we get a lot of federal grants:)

    Re: What is your total property tax rate?

    Anything over 2% is very high property tax rates. However, you should calculate this as of actual value and not the assessed value but in most cases the assessed value should be in the right range.

    I would take those high Texas property taxes in exchange for no income tax.

    I would say my actual in Ankeny is approaching 10% more than assessed.
