Property Tax Increase on purchase

4 Replies

Hi BP,

So reading on BP I see some counties increase property tax based on purchase price while others don’t. Is there a quick way to find out which counties do this and which ones don’t? Is there a phrase or terminology that I should look out for? Is the best option just to call the tax collectors office and ask?

@Jason Lam , if you tell people what area you are talking about someone here might know.  In my area this is not done. 

I would contact the assessor or check their web page.

@Kevin Sobilo my question was so broad because I’m currently trying to research markets for my first property. This is why I was hoping there was some terminology for this that would make it easier to research. “Property tax based on sale price X county” may just have to do for now.
