Find Out Which Cities Have the Highest and Lowest Property Tax Rates in Pinellas County, Florida
Most people will agree that buying a home is one of the BIGGEST investments they'll ever make. Like any investment, real estate comes with long term costs that need to be considered and budgeted for, such as insurance and property taxes. While homeowner's insurance rates can fluctuate from property to property, one thing we can predict is property taxes, based on the local rates released by each city. This information is important to know BEFORE you purchase a home.
To make things simpler for you, we've collected the latest property tax rates in Pinellas County, FL and listed them below. The results might surprise you, but can help you save money when shopping for a home. In some cities, the millage rates (aka property tax rates) are 174% higher than others, even though they’re just minutes away from one another. That can add up on your annual property tax bill or drive up your monthly mortgage payment if the mortgage company also escrows taxes and insurance for you.
