Wow. I thought no place was worse than Loudoun at 1.245.

For Manassas that assessments dropped a lot so some may actually be paying less in real estate taxes...

In PWC, it went from .97 to 1.212 and I'll be saving $400+ compared to last year.

I know that Caroline County is a little far south, but I'll post anyways. Our taxes are staying the same at $0.53, though we haven't had a re-assessment since 2005...

I own a townhouse in Manassas (rent it out now - moved to Gainesville last October). Assessment dropped from $272K to $123K. Manassas has far too much "affordable housing" in terms of it contributing to huge price drop in area because of tons of foreclosures. Foreclosures/short sales ARE the market, there are almost no sales that aren't one of those two. That is cause for huge price drop. Actually, my property taxes will drop from $3000 last year to roughly $1900 this year - quite a savings. Still, wish my property was worth more - while I owned it for years (and lived there for years) and am not underwater - actually mortgage nearly paid off - I still would like to get more for it than about $100K which is all it might fetch right now. 3 years ago my neighbors sold theirs for $360K. In 2007 mine was assessed at $354K. So in 2 years has gone from $354K to $272K to $123K!! Now you know why property tax rate in Manassas is so bad.

Expect Manassas Park to be even worse, but they are playing some game where assessments from last year still in effect for first 6 months this year! Then, later this year new assessments and property tax rate will take affect, expect it to be higher than City of Manassas.

My new house in PWC, I'll also be saving about $400 on taxes this year it appears. Funny though, it is worth much much more than my townhouse, yet savings will be less both in absolute terms, and definitely in percentage terms, than on my Manassas City townhouse. Glad I don't own property in Manassas Park though, that's going to be the real disaster.

Manassas Park Schools are more like "Deliverance" than FCPS.

Yikes! Sounds scary. I bet Manassas Park's tax rate for 2nd half of year wlil be even more than Manasass' tax rate. Not that I have any children, but I'm glad I moved out of Manassas - when prices improve in a couple of years hopefully will sell my townhouse. Right now have to deal with renting it out, but at least it is providing income (even more now with lower taxes temporarily - tax bill went down $1100 roughly from 2008 - but of course property value when down by 60%).
