Though all property is assessed, not all of it is taxable.
Some properties, such as those owned by religious organizations or governments are completely exempt from paying property taxes.
Others are partially exempt, such as veterans who qualify for an exemption on part of their homes, and homeowners who are eligible for the School Tax Relief (STAR) program.
Most exemptions are offered by local option of the taxing jurisdiction (municipality, county or school district). Check with your assessor to determine what exemptions are available in your community.
These are some of the most common property tax exemptions:

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.
