I understand that the value of the home varies depending on location. All I'm saying is that the tax rate doesn't vary. And if your taxes are that high on a 1,800 sf house I'm still wondering if you're getting the homestead exemption which you should qualify for regardless of your age.

You know, driving around Texas I see lots of goats, but most of the time it is less than 10. I would suspect that is done to get an AG property exemption that I hear about often. Isn't this an abuse of the property tax system to prevent higher property taxes? Now, IMO if you have 1-10 acres, you shouldn't have to pay as much property tax as, say people who live on lots in town. What would be for fair, is to charge at the regular rate for the property around the house (say 1/4 acre), and the rest of the acreage should be charged less than 1/2 as it is just vacant land. That way people wouldn't have to buy some goats to beat the system.
