Please be aware that if your property value goes up, it does not necessarily mean you will pay more taxes. Likewise, if your property value goes down or does not change, it does not automatically mean you will pay less or the same amount of taxes. Your property taxes are based on how much your local governments decide to spend on roads, parks, fire protection, police protection, health, and other services each year. Property taxes also fund your local public schools.
