If you want to add wife to the title, you would need to contact a local real estate attorney or a title/closing company and have them prepare a quitclaim deed from you as the Grantor over to both you and wife as the Grantees. Once it is signed and notarized, it is then recorded at the local land records office and the transfer is complete.
Since this is an "interspousal transfer" this wouldn't affect any taxation of the property. But if the county is imposing a higher overall tax on all property and reassessing as a matter of their policy, then the taxes would go up along with everyone else's.
