Housing and taxes: What do you need to know?

There are many things to consider when buying a home, but what should we really be aware of when it comes to taxes?

1. property value tax:

Property value tax is a tax that is calculated based on the publicly assessed value of your property. The tax is paid annually and is usually a percentage of the value of the property. Rates can vary from municipality to municipality.

2. Land tax:

Land tax is a municipal tax that is calculated based on the land value of the property. It is also an annual tax and the rate is set by each municipality. The land tax is used to finance municipal expenses.
