    Reminder: Property Tax time!

    Just a reminder everyone, it is property tax time. Time to pay up for all those wonderful services your county provides you.

    I only remind everyone because I forgot, and they are due March 1st. Of course you are not deliquent until Mar 31st.

    Oh and writing that check every 6 months about kills me. I need to look into the escrow thing.

    I have been dreading this for a few months already. The personal ones aren't that bad. But commercial property taxes are a killer.

    Most mortgage companies will not let you do it on your own. You got lucky. Mine was nice enough to let me pay them on my own.

    This year? $3.

    Next year (Sept.), well - that's a very different story.

    I paid my $2 a long time ago. I'm not sure how much they're going to be next year.

    *shudder* Texas uses the property tax to make up for the lack of a state income tax. This I'm really not looking forward to.

    Although there are a lot of factors that go into it...any idea of how big the difference is between Washington and Iowa property tax? Even an order-of-magnitude estimate would be helpful.

    Re: Reminder: Property Tax time!

    Out taxes this year were 22.68/thousand of assessed value.

    So $4536 on a 200K house. How does that compare to central Iowa?
