All becomes clear
We wrote about property taxes last year, but that post was somewhat hindered by the fact that I had misplaced or not received the breakdown of how the taxes were calculated.
All is well now though, as the breakdown for this year has arrived. Feast your eyes on the wealth of information below.
As you can see, they have assessed the value of our manshon as 4.3m yen, and the value of the land as 221,000 yen for property tax reasons (the land is valued at twice as much for the city planning tax for some reason).
We owe 1.4% of the assessed value as property tax, and 0.3% as city planning tax.
And the end result is that our taxes for this year are about the same as they were last year (they seem to have gone up by 200 yen, which I am not particularly upset about), to be paid in four installments over the year. Monthly this comes to just over 6,000 yen a month.
How about you? What do your property taxes look like? Remember that new builds have reduced property taxes for a few years.
