    Question for a young n00b. Is this deducted from your paychecks throughout the year or is this something you're expected pay in a lump sump?

    You don't have a mortgage, do you?

    Couple of ways, through an escrow account with the mortgage company, or pay on your own in a lump sum each year.

    Generally it's part of your mortgage payment.

    Escrow account. Your monthly mortgage is Principal+Interest+EscrowPayments/12. As taxes change yearly, what you need to have in escrow is adjusted yearly when the bank does the review.

    It is not deducted as extra taxes, but in fact, you pay it as mortgage.

    However, some people opt to pay this on their own .. very rare, but it happens. They often get in trouble as it's so easy to decide not to pay.

    You sound like your from New Hampshire. It's not uncommon for residents of Durham (UNH town) to pay $10,000

    Are you disciplined enough to set aside $400 per month on your own just for your property taxes?

    If so, you are far more discliplined than many.

    Banks want you to escrow (taxes and insurance), but if you can force yourself to save it and invest every month. Why give the bank free money.

    You can, I think it depends on how long you have had your home loan.

    In IL, we do 2 payments about 4 months apart. I'm at a little over $7k for 2200 sq. ft. and 1/2 arce, water, sewer, garbage are extra for me.

    $5000 a year now down from $6000 last year due to H. exemption and reduction of rates. (Hillsborough County)

    My bank gives me money market interest rates on my escrow account. So there really isn't a good reason not to pay it monthly.

    Wow. I thought mine was bad at $1050.00. Yet another reason why I did not move and just fixed my house up. I keep the tax scale based on when I purchased my house in 1989.
