The land alone is valued at $55k, not including the house.

So you think that I should pay the same property tax on both parcels?
1 acre one rate, if acre is in the same town yes, could you have a rate for buildable acre vs un-buildable acre, absolutely. My argument was originally based on a acre of buildable lot and sqft of building on it
