How much are taxes on a New Construction home?

If you are purchasing a new construction home it may be difficult to estimate your tax bill.  The first bill you receive may be for more or less than 12 months depending on when your certificate of occupancy was issued by the building department.  Because assessments and tax rates change yearly, you should expect your tax bill to change yearly.   A ballpark estimate for a full 12 month tax bill on a newly constructed home is approximately 3% - 3¼% of your sale price.  Historically, taxes increase annually in our area.  Please budget accordingly and contact our office with any questions or concerns.
