If you want to know how to have all that you want in a home while keeping your taxes low, you need to factor in the valuation of the home and the tax rate.  Each town has different formulas for figuring out what your yearly amount of taxes will be for living in that particular town.  Taking a closer look at the valuation and rate per town will assist in the process to help find a town that will allow you to have the home that you want and pay less than the maximum taxes you are hoping for in the end.  Do keep in mind that even though the math is supposed to be an exact science, it doesn't always show up that way.  However, this is a safe rule of thumb if taxes are a priority with in your home searching.
