Property tax is an income tax.
It’s the sum of all taxes you owe and the amount you’re paying each year.
You can’t deduct property taxes from your taxable income unless you’ve paid them yourself.
It also applies to the value of the house or apartment you own.
You have to pay your property taxes when you pay your taxes, which can take up to four weeks.
It doesn’t apply to mortgage interest.
How much are property taxes?
Property tax usually starts at the property’s value and goes up with inflation.
Your property tax bill starts when you buy the property and goes down every year.
Your total tax bill for the year is usually less than the value you pay in taxes each year (unless you have a special exemption).
If you have no income tax, your property tax is your property’s fair market value.
If you are exempt from property tax, you’re usually entitled to a smaller deduction for property taxes paid, but you’ll still pay more than the property tax you paid.
