The amount due is 1/2% percent of that for buildings, or 1/8% percent of that for land.

Multi-family homes are common, as are multi-home lots.That being said, the Chamorro view of money is different than the mainland view.Because of strong family ties, there isn’t much of a separation of finances among family members — even adult children who have left their parents’ home.Funerals on Guam are known to be far more expensive than even weddings, with money going to the priest, the church, and to feed family and friends for eight days.Chamorros also commemorate the loved one on the anniversary of their death and that’s called a rosary as well.
