        Land tax

        The estate tax is a tax on the ownership of land ( control substance ). Tax base for the property tax is usually the value of the property. In many countries, the tax rate is on municipal level set.

        Germany [ Edit ]

        The situation in Germany is under property tax (Germany) described in detail.

        Austria [ Edit ]

        The Austrian scheme is very similar to the situation in Germany, more details is under property tax (Austria) described.

        Canada [ Edit ]

        Many provinces in Canada levy a property tax, the amount of which depends on the value and use of the land. This is the main source of revenue for most local governments in Canada. The tax rate varies between municipalities, but most of the cost bases, evaluation procedures, etc. established by provincial law. Is increasingly a standard market value used is adjusted in different cycles. Some provinces provide for an annual adjustment in the event that the property market is particularly volatile, while others have long periods elapse between revaluations.

        Netherlands [ Edit ]

        The estate tax (Dutch: Onroerend goed belasting or onroerende zaak belasting (OZB)) is in two parts collected by the municipalities: the residents of the house and the owner of the house. Tenants of housing pay only the portion that accrues to the residents. In recent years, increases in the taxation of over 10% in some municipalities were cause for concern. In 2005 there was a bill in Parliament that only the part of the owner should be maintained, and that this is not likely to rise faster than inflation .

          The ground (estate) tax is a tax on the ownership of land parcels
          (wealth tax). The basis for the groundtax is mostly the worth of the
          parcel. In many countries, the tax rate is set at the local level.

            It looks like each state has an ad valorem real estate tax (land and buildings). I looked at a couple of state sites.  It looks like it is paid quarterly, but there are exemptions of credit for children and and some kind of lower rate if the condo is newer. 
             
            It appears that there is a london office ( i gather for foreign owners to pay?) maybe you could call them and they could give you a sketch of how real estate taxes actual work in Germany.   I saw one site explaining how that soil evaluation is down for ag land and presumable to make assessments.
