I was noodling around looking at real estate on zillow and noticed that many of the houses I looked at had ridiculously low tax bills for Westchester -- e.g., 4k annually for an 800k house in the Byram Hills school district versus 12k for Mt. Pleasant or 20k for Chappaqua.

Is IBM making up the entire difference or is there something else that I am missing?

4K a year does not sound right - too low for a ~$800K home. But, yes, in general taxes in Armonk area are lower than comparable towns. I've read that is largely due to significant contribution from industry (IBM, Swiss Re, etc.) as well as New York City paying for a percentage of its water supply to North Castle.
