Question

Are real estate taxes the same as property taxes?

Answer

Yes, the term “property taxes” usually refers to real estate taxes paid on your home or property. There is a tax on personal property called “personal property tax,” which isn’t the same. Personal property refers to items that are mobile, rather than real property that’s fixed.
