If you have a mortgage and you escrow for your taxes, your lender will pay them on your behalf. If you pay your taxes, remember to mail them by the 15th or you can pay online:

Whatever your assessment was, divide by $100, then multiply but the current tax rate of $0.971. That should give you your annual real estate property taxes:

Example: Assessed value of $600,000
2012 Taxes = $600,000/$100 = $6000*0.971 = $5,826 in property taxes for the year (so each installment will be $2,913)

If your home is currently under contract, pay the taxes by the 15th to avoid the late fee. You will be reimbursed if your closing date is before that day on your HUD1 statement by the buyer.
