Kauai Property Taxes
What you need to know about Kauai Property Taxes…
Aloha! We understand that buying a home or condo in the middle of the ocean can be daunting. Hopefully this answers some questions about taxation. If you need more assistance we can refer you to a tax specialist. For additional help anytime on this or any other Kauai related needs please call Billy O’ 808-755-5866 and he will help.
The County of Kauai uses the county taxes for the benefit of the county. Essentially, we as residents are investing in the county when we pay our property taxes and other fees such as motor vehicle weight tax and fuel tax. The money the residents put into the county each year is returned to the county in the form of services. There are some services we may not think of when it comes to using our tax dollars. Kauai uses this money to fund departments such as fire and police protection, street maintenance, lighting, water, sewer, rubbish collection and the beautiful parks and beaches we regularly enjoy. Although some of this money can come from other taxes and fees, the majority of it comes from our property taxes, which the county could not operate without. So just think, buy a house on Kauai, and you will be contributing to keeping the garden island beautiful and thriving.

Our experience with Billy O’Sullivan could not have been better. He learned what we were looking for in a home, showed us homes that met that criteria, and worked with us through somewhat difficult negotiations. he was extremely helpful in helping us learn the market and the island, I would recommend Billy O’Sullivan without reservations.
I accepted a job in CA at a time when I wasn’t really expecting to relocate. To complicate matters my house had some uncompleted projects that would need to be finished before it could go on the market. I had a short time frame to complete my relocation and therefor I didn’t have time to interview contractors or stay around to supervise the work. I contacted Billy and he told me not to worry about as he could handle coordinating both repairs and the sale of the house. He said the most important…
This is the second transaction we have done with Billy and Louis. Just like the previous project it was done perfectly. Working together (agent and client) is very important. They understand this and makes sure communication and understanding are frequent and timely. We have one more property to sell and you bet we are using Billy and his team for that one also.
We’d been considering buying an investment property in Kauai for some time and signed up for Billy’s alert service to track listings and sales in the area. When we were ready to explore the opportunities and kick the tires on-site in Kauai, we didn’t consider calling anyone other than Billy. Prior to our visit, Billy and his associate, Ann Luckett, quickly put together a list of potential properties that met our criteria and then efficiently moved us through all of the available homes in less th…
