We don’t really know. Palm Beach Gardens’ reputation as an upscale community may lead people to believe taxes are high, but the numbers don’t lie. Palm Beach Gardens’ property tax rate is slightly higher than unincorporated rates, but the City doesn’t tax utilities, pays a portion of every resident’s trash bill and has a lower communication tax rate.
