Santa Claus must look out for you. I live on 3/4 of an acre and I pay over $4,500 a year in property tax. You are getting the deal of the century there. Sounds like a really unjust system that would allow somebody with 26 acres to pay just 25% more than somebody with just 3% of that land. Sounds like the deck is stacked in your favor and you are probably allowing others to pick up the slack for what you yourself are not paying in that unjust tax system.
