Question Property tax in Hemet or San Jacinto

Anyone know how much you pay for your property tax each year? I'm looking on zillow.com and it seems like the annual tax amounts are 2+% which seems high to me.

You may want to check the Riverside County's Property Tax Website. Just type in the address of the home your looking into and it will give you a break down of the property taxes. Base tax rate and corresponding mello-roos. The site is currently frozen due to year end processing, it usually comes back on-line in October.

https://taxpayments.co.riverside.ca.us/Search.aspx

Since the above webpage is not up and running right now, to get a general idea of how much the property tax is on any given property, I go to Find All the Homes for Sale & Experienced Real Estate Agents | Redfin, enter the address of the property you're interested in buying, then click on the link with the property address on it and on that pop-up window you can see the enite property history, including taxes for the previous year and the assessed value.

I hope this helps...I wish I would have found out about it sooner before making offers on homes only to later find out my payments would be $200-$300 more a month than what I wanted to spend!

Good luck our there!!!

If you're coming from out of state and don't know -

If you own and occupy your home as your principal place of residence, you are eligible for a Homeowners’ Exemption, which reduces your property tax by about $70 annually. You will be sent an application about three to four months after your deed is recorded.

CA has a flat 1% property tax.
Some cities/counties have voted in Mello Roo's which will raise the tax. You will need to ask for the disclousures to find out if where you are looking is more. There might be a website with that info, maybe google for it.
