If your property is in an unincorporated area, usually called the county or rural area, and it is anexed into a corporated are, usually referred to as the city. you will be taxed by the city and the county in most cases. Depending on where the property is your HO insurance could be higher in an unincorporated area. In my case the higher insurance offset what I saved in city taxes when I moved from the city to the county. The value of the property would increase/decrease depending on what county and city you are talking about. That information online will best be available from people on this forum or other forums that live inthe respective areas. I doubt you will find much official info on that except for maybe evaluations on the tax assessor's site.

Find a place in that school district for his senior year and you will pat yourself on the back for the rest of your life.

Well jmmt, my family members who reside much further south of that area, said the same thing about Olive Branch. There are so many new subdivisions to choose from. We couldn't keep track of the details pertaining to each home. Once we did, it was one in Olive Branch that we seem to have come to an agreement on.

Hey just to let every one know. Tishimingo county, and Desoto county are a world apart. Desoto is a Wet county and has around 200,000 people. Not to mention Southaven is 15 minutes from downtown Memphis, and Beale street. Sorry you got stuck out in the boonies, though.
