    The tax rate for the City Of Manchester, NH for the year 2007 was set at $16.57 per $1000.00 of assessed value of your home.


    I pay $2700 per year. It's robbery plain and simple.

    Don't know about that RB. Total taxes this year=$536.

    That includes 3 pieces of property. 2 city lots in the center of a small town where T grandparents used to live, 5 acres outside of said little town and the house where we live. First two pieces were $100 of the total. Appraised for tax pursoses at about $5000 on the lots and maybe a bit more for the land. the house is valued at somewhere around $120,000 and is within city limits of an actual city. (we have villages, towns and cities based on population)

    Can't complain about them, though I do on occasion, usually when I have to pay them!

    I should also probably say that the tax appraisal values are generally less than market values.

    If I tell you what I pay, you'd see it's robbery on YOUR side. LOL!! Atleast comparing to where I live.

    I'm waiting to vote since I think I might give someone a stroke if they see the number that we pay.

    Our taxes are 1.151 per $100 of assessed value of the home. That's combined city and county.

    Our tax rate is really weird. They assess our property at 800.00 and the house at 6400.00 I don't know what those numbers mean because it totally doesn't reflect the true value of the house. I can never figure that stuff out. LOL!!

    Way too much, have lost about 80,000 in value over the last two years here in Oakland, MI. I doubt things will get better either. (4732.00 a year)

    I pay $1200.00 per year and do not have a fancy house.

    They will go up this year, I'm sure, since we sided the house and put up a fence.

    Some people do not make improvements because their taxes will go up. I think the government should reward us for improving instead of penalizing us. Sad...

    How do they know you re-sided the house and put up a fence?

    Our home is $1000 per year though the value has tripled or more since we bought it about 10 years ago. We also completely remodeled it. The new buyer of this home will pay almost $4000 per year in property taxes.

    We pay $1000 a year on our other property. It's about 1% of the value of the property when it was purchased. Our property taxes are low, but everything else is very expensive.

    They make you buy a permit from the city so they can keep track of any improvements. Our taxes went up when we put a new roof on the sunporch...we had to get a permit for that too.

    Not only do we have to get a permit to add a room, but we had to get a permit to tear out a wall to make two rooms into one!!!!!!!!!!

    That's the same way it works around here too.. You have to get a permit (so they can keep tabs) so you can be safe while doing your remodel. :rolleyes:

    It's all a racket to make money from you. I had a roof put on, paid the $35 permit fee and never saw the imspector once..

    Joe, have you done all your work under permits, or did you not get any permits? Are they needed in your area? I find it hard to believe that your town isn't money hungry like ours! :)

    $2294 for a 3-BR, single garage house. We have a $15,000 homestead exemption for the school district only, not for county or city. But that is down over $300 from last year.

    We live in a uncorporated part of the County, not in town. The remodeling I did myself didn't require a permit. The new roof and windows were done by a Contractor, I assumed he got the permits needed. It is my responsibility to check on this, though most do not. He's a good guy, I trust him.

    Our properties are worth much more than what we are paying in property taxes, as the value remains at the amount you purchased it for. When the house sells, it is the new owners who will pay a higher property tax.

    Yes, our area is very money hungry. Only property taxes have remained on a level key due to Prop 13 forbdding our property taxes to be increased. I found our County listed on Wikipedia under the 100 most wealthy people in the States. Mostly rich yuppies live here. So it's not cheap, and may be wise for us to move to another state, except it is such a beautiful area. The people are here are wonderful.

    Taxing people for re-roofing, building fences, etc...seems quite unfair.

    I'm not sure exactly all the rules around here but we redid bathrooms without needing permits but we needed a permit to fill in our pool. Weird. What's great around here is that you can completely remodel your home - do major home improvements and have the new tax rate phased in over 9 years. So if you pay $1000 in taxes now and your new rate would be $3000, that $2000 difference is divided by 9 and the first year you pay the $1000 and one ninth of the increase. The next year it's the $1000 and 2/9 of the increase ... and on, and on, and on.

    Of course, those numbers are far from accurate around here. Our property taxes are $14,000.

    Is the poll for a year, or for half year?
