mine went up about 2%, and the percentage increase or decrease is the only thing that matters, right?

RE tax went up by $96.80. Lower tax rate in 2019 but assessed value went up, so now almost $1,800 for the entire year.

Holy crap! Mine are only $400, but that's because they're property taxes. What they'll increase to once I have the property developed, I really don't know. From the surrounding properties, though, I doubt it will be over $1500 a year.

Sounds like a Texas tax bill. $7K is not uncommon.

I won’t know how much the property taxes increased, but our valuation increased by 12%+ from last year. Ouch. Gentrifying area and we are the poor white trash trying to remain where we have lived for 36+ years. Last year with ah exemption, taxes were $3000.

We have 5+ acres with 2 pole buildings and 2400 square foot home plus attached garage.

Mine stayed steady. The house we sold 12 years ago continues to go up every year thanks to a tax cap. This was one of the reasons we moved out of that state. The cap enacted in the early 90's limited the property tax increases to 2% or the rate of inflation, which is less. It doesn't sound like much but it adds up over time. The real problem was that you are guaranteed an increase every year literally forever since the taxed amount will never match the assessed amount due to the cap, even when taking ups and down in the market into consideration. The area became high value after we bought the house.

I looked at things realistically as far as retirement goes, saw that I didn't want to pay upwards of $1,000 a month between taxes and insurance on a house forever, sold the house and moved to where the monthly costs are significantly lower.
