  1. Good letter by Mr. Cunningham.

    “Tax traps for new homeowners”

    Homebuyers are well-advised to research property taxes before they make an offer to purchase a home, so they won’t be caught off-guard by rate hikes or reassessments, for example.

    * Buyers also should find out whether a home may be subject to multiple property tax authorities. Not only states, but also counties, cities and special districts, such as local water, sewer or school authorities, may wield such powers, according to Pete Sepp, vice president for policy and communications at the National Taxpayers Union, or NTU, a nonprofit group in Alexandria, Va.

    * In some cities, schools are substantially funded through property taxes – which means you can count on yours increasing regularly.
