Property Tax Law

Real property, like a home or a plot of land, is subject to taxation by the government, and the property owner is responsible for paying it. Generally, these property taxes are assessed by local governments and the amounts owed depend on where the property is located, the assessed value of the land and any improvements made to the property. Failure to pay property taxes can result in a lien being placed on the home or collections actions taken against the owner.
