My house in San Diego has a market value of about $540K, and my property tax for 2006 was $1,850.

Y'all ought to get your own version of our Proposition 13 before you get taxed out of house and home.

I suggest you ask for a reacharound next time.

What is your house appraised at?

Link Posted: 12/19/2005 8:39:00 AM EDT
fook: That sounds about right. Here in Los Angeles, a decent middle of the road house is like $500,000. 1% of that amount for property taxes is $5,000, and a some money for the local school district, you're up to about $7,000.

An intern that used to work here took a job in Alabama.

She said that the property her and her husband bought had a years worth of back taxes due.

She said it almost made her sick when she found out, because it was "the house of my dreams".

Until she went to the courthouse, and found that the years worth of property taxes was $32.00

I about shit.

I believe you know that is not a true dichotomy. Prop 13 is considered to be "bad law" by the pinkos here. Get yourself a login on Delta Uniform and search for it some time. The left considers it the root of all the problems with our public schools, and every other failure of government.


That said, yeah I think we really do need something similar


Yes you do, and once you get it in place it will be so popular that nobody will ever be able to repeal it. Anyone here who dares speak of overturning it gets tarred and feathered.

True if you actually paid $500K for your house. I bought mine 11 years ago for $141K.
Link Posted: 12/19/2005 8:44:20 AM EDT
Do you know what your house is appraised at? Is this the same number that the government used to calculate your taxes? Is it the same amount as a fair market value.

Quite a few local municipalities have been known to hire their own appraisers to inspect homes and artificially give them a higher worth. Home owners are fooled into thinking this is a good thing, my house is worth more, can make money if I sell it, get a better morgage etc. Its just a way for them to tax you more for your home. What they say its worth is not what the market value of the home is.

For that kind of money I'd look into making sure they are legit on the worth they place on your home.

Move outside the city limits (any city). Fucking school taxes are a joke. I think if you do not use the public school system you shouldn't have to pay for it. My dad always bitched about them since I went to a private school.

Here in Cali before Proposition 13 the county assessors were "sticking it to the rich" by re-assessing houses in the more desirable neighborhoods every year. Of course that includes retirees who got into the nicer areas in the 1940s and 50s when even La Jolla was affordable for middle-class people.

Holy Cow! looks like you need to light the fire under your legislators butts and pass a property tax limitation. In Oregon they can not receive more than 5 dollars per $1000 of value.

Yep. 7 grand here would be the bite on the King Ranch. Of course, some would say we don't get what we don't pay for, but then- some people don't get what they DO pay for.

Texas Supreme Court just ruled the "Robin Hood" plan unconstitutional.

So you may see lower property taxes next year. Or maybe not.

At least there's no state income tax... yet.
Link Posted: 12/19/2005 8:55:16 AM EDT
Texas has no income tax so everyone gets the boo-foo on property taxes. There is a limit on the % of property taxes, but it is of little help since the appraisals keep rising. It will really be a mess when the legislature fails to fix the "Robin Hood" school tax plan and the Texas Supreme Court implements their own school funding law.

which is good. It means if you get a raies, you don't pay more in income taxes than you were. Property taxes can be fought. Always protest if they are increasing your prop. taxes.

You've got to live somewhere, you can't live out of a cardboard box can you? You will cover the cost of prop taxes whether you buy or rent, and you can't share in the appreciation of real estate. Of course you can only realize a profit if you sell the property, but you also must find another place to live.

In Calif prior to Prop 13, the counties would raise the assessment value of real estate by changing the assesement rate, people on fixed income could see their taxes raised 100% sometimes in a year. local govts only think of revenue streams and not cutting taxes.

The rate I pay for state personal income tax is about 4.5%, which bites the big one and for me will add up to a little over $3K this year. The maximum rate is around 10%. People who earn enough to "qualify" for that honor are often able to shelter themselves from it.

We also have other mandatory deductions like unemployment and state disability insurance. My payout for that for 2005 will be about $779. But I collected about $8,400 (federally taxable) from that in 2004 when I was unemployed for 5 months.

With all that I'm still paying less than $5,700 in state crapola to live in a better than decent house in a nice city.

Texas Constitution does not allow "proposition" type votes like California. Everything has to be done as an amendment to the State Constitution. That sucker has a zillion amendments.

well lets see, mine is about 1500 a year on a 200,000 house...and i pay probably about 5000 or so in state income tax...so that makes us about equal since you have no state income tax.

I paid $5000 in taxes and I have a $200k home. I paid almost 50% of my income on taxes. But considering the what the others pay in other countries thats how it goes.

I live on 1.6 acres and after Homestead Exemption, I'll have to pay about $150 in February, but on my rental property which is a smaller house with a storage shed (16 X16), the taxes are $650, it's all assessed at .65 acres. Both properties are in the county. Crap. You don't really own land, you rent it from the government.

What is your sales tax rate in TX? When I was working in Dallas, 7 years ago, it was 8.25%. Here in Calif, the official state tax is 7.75%, but this is not include any other local sales taxes that maybe added on. In some areas of Calif, the rate can be as high as 8.50% that I know of, but we used to pay 8.75% at one time, and the politicos fought tooth & nail to keep it at that rate, but they lost.

Well I just checked a receipt from one of my christmas purchases and it says 8.25 but I just googled and it says the state sales tax rate is 6.25 so that must be the local added in.

So as usual I was talking out of my ass. Taxes still suck.
