Hi Omaha😊,

I’m a bit confused about the property taxes on single family homes in Omaha. Are the property taxes approximately 2% of the sale price? So if I purchase a 300,000 home my property taxes will be around 5 grand per year?

Are there nice towns with good schools within 25-30 mins of Omaha with lower property taxes?

Thank you

Have a great weekend everyone 😊

Yes, that’s in the ballpark.

Not really. Property taxes in Nebraska are high in general.

300K home, I pay 7K in property taxes, per year. So more than 2%. It's robbery.

Yes, Omaha is on the Iowa border. Hell of a lot less expensive in the small towns there than in Nebraska.


Lots of towns to choose from within 25 to 30 minutes of Omaha.

Texas sucks that way too. Many are 2.5 % of the current value.

This is a common thread across all states.
The home owner loves to see the price of his home rise so he can sell it down the road for a profit.
The city refuses to regulate because the higher the sale price the larger the revenue stream.
Somethings got to pay for all them street signs, road repairs, garbage collections, and damn freeloaders.
When I purchased my home as a young man I thought for sure things would be easier once the house was paid off.
Problems only start when you are retired and on a fixed pension or S.S. and hoping to enjoy that paid off home.
Then the property taxes start rising faster than leavened bread. How the City kicks you to the curb when done with you.


Owning a home is modern day slavery.

Wow. Why do people continue to pay those taxes for nothing in return? It is the same in texas too. I cannot wait to get to an that taxes consumption over property. I can control consumption, but not their stupid games rigging prices and taxes.

Those are high property tax rates, my mom lives in Nebraska this why I’m lurking on this forum. But I live in Salt Lake, bought our house for $249,000 and property tax is .75%, houses here also cost more in general but our property tax rates are really low.
