Property Taxes in Rochester

4 Replies

Hi all,

We have just started to explore the possibility of investing in Rochester NY.  On listings I often see "property taxes" and then a separate "school tax".   So.. I found this website  

This shows the previous year's tax assessment for properties in Monroe county.  Is this number ALL inclusive, or are there additional taxes (school or town taxes?) I need to be factoring in?    If there are other taxes, how do I get an accurate # for those?

Thank you for any input you have about this.  I can't accurately analyze a deal until I understand this!

Call the county clerks office, they can help verify town and county taxes and the school district for school taxes.

Thanks guys. Is there an "average" total tax percent I could use across deals to get close before I dig deeper for the actual numbers  or do they vary significantly?
