Property Taxes

What are property taxes like in Xalapa, or in the port? Say for a $300,000 (USD) house. Here in my part of snowy NJ its aproaching $8,000. And thats for a townhouse.

There are a lot of factors to consider what the property tax is here in Xalapa, especially location. But I would say a home worth US$300K in the Fraccionamiento Las Animas would have a tax around US$1,000-$2,000 annual. This is a "residencia"(3-4 bedroom house, yard, etc).
Mexicans are very adiment about not paying high property taxes.

Wow, thats interesting. They must make up the tax revenue with oil, and I understand they hit you really hard when you buy a car. I'm not quite ready yet to make a break for it, but I was just watching Romancing the Stone and salivating.

$1000 to $2000 US. That is what I pay in and unincorporated part of Clackamas County, 10 miles south of dowtown Portland on a 200k house.

I have read of taxes of < $200 USD in the Yucatan. Are these state taxes, or local?

Ron:
You are right about low taxes on old homes in the downtown areas of many Mexico cities, or in more rural areas. A lot depends on the age and location of a house or building, obviously taxes are much higher in an upscale "fraccionamiento".
