We generally tell people to plan around 1% of value. Other factors can come into play besides just the tax rate, like the Sedona Fire District.
Property tax is at the FCV or full cash value assessment. If the property is your primary residence however you would pay the lower LPV or lower property value. A percentage cap is also in place so that your taxes can't be raised to much in one year. I'm not sure what it is , but it's low.
