You can estimate your land share percentage by visiting the Lincoln Institute of Land Policy and use contemporary land share values for either your metropolitan area or your State. Alternatively, if you live outside the US, you can estimate your property’s “Land Share” by consulting a licensed appraiser who can estimate the value of your property’s land, which you then need to manually divide by your current property value. For example, if your property is valued at $250,000 and your property’s land is valued at $100,000, your land share % is: $100,000 / $250,000 = 40%. Data Sources:

If you don’t know your current property tax rate, but have your current property tax bill, simply divide your current property tax bill by your current property value to get your property tax rate. If you don’t know your average tax rate, there are several websites on the Internet that will provide you with an estimate of your average tax rate.
