Real Property Database:
The Real Property Database contains parcel-level information related to the assessment of real property. This information is the basis for the property taxes paid to local governments and school districts.
Property tax rates are based primarily on school district and municipal boundaries. Check the Property Details page of a property for school district information and then choose the appropriate combination from the Municipalities pull down menu to calculate an estimate of the total property taxes for the property, exclusive of exemptions. Note that in some cases, there may be special district taxes in addition to the categories listed here.
