I can't complain. I moved here from Long Island NY, just under 2 years ago so local property taxes here are extremely reasonable ... especially considering the quality of life I have now compared to then!

The typical Suffolk County (LI, NY) homeowner pays $8,151 annually in property taxes.

There are 8 million plus people living on Long Island compared to 3 million in this entire state, (and it feels like they are all out on the roads anytime you need to go anywhere!), so you're getting a pretty good deal as far as I'm concerned.

(the good deal) Matter of opinion , depending from what side of the curve you are looking at .
(the amount) I agree, that is a lot ! No matter from what side you are looking at .

I wonder, what were you getting *there*, compared to what Utah does now give you ?

That's a tough call ... as I said I consider my quality of life to be significantly better here than in NY, but that's mostly because of the ridiculous number of people who live there, causing traffic congestion, long waits for anything you need (getting your car serviced, trying to get a table at a restaurant, you name it).

Strangely you would think that a higher density of people paying taxes should make the taxes lower, but it doesn't.

Without a lot of study in terms of what your tax dollar gets you, I honestly can't answer your question ... and for that kind of difference in taxes, I should be able to.

Kyak,

You can plan on your property taxes being roughly $1,100 per $100,000 TAXABLE VALUE. If this property will be your primary residence, the taxable value is only 55% of the MARKET VALUE (so, that brings the tax rate to about $600 per $100K market value).

Most of the tax levy (65%) is for local and state school funds. The rest is a number of smaller (mostly county) items. The city levy for me makes up only 12% of my tax, so that might be the only part that's different for La Verkin since everything else should be the same.

I think you'd be safe using the $1,100/$100K taxable value formula as an estimate:

Tax = (Market Value of home x .55) x ($1,100/$100,000 or .011)

$200K home x .55 = $110,000 x .011 = $1,210 property taxes

If this is going to be a secondary/vacation home, then it's $200K x .011 = $2,200 in tax
