Assessment Value (real estate tax) vs. Purchase Price?
It is normal for the assessed value for tax purposes to be lower than market value. The property appraiser has rules for assessing a property for tax purposes. This does not affect the market value of your property.

That's normal... it is always lower and it has nothing to do with the actual value of your home. Be glad your taxes are based on this much lower number! Your home's value is what someone is willing to pay for... not what a piece of paper states. http://www.choicefinance.net/

The answer to your question is more complex than the answers already given! In general they sound correct but, you need to know the relationship between 2/3's of your purchase price and the annual tax charged! In order to correctly answer this question, you need to find out whether or not your county or state, (like Florida) bases your taxes on the purchase price or if you live in a state where the use the assessed value X a mil rate. Call the county clerks office and they'll tell you exactly how it's calculated. Then you'll have the correct answer...Congrats on the new house!

Assessment is based on market value or similiar homes to yours. It is normal.
