New Census Housing Data Shows Where Property Taxes on Homeowners Are Highest
September 12, 2007
This morning, the Tax Foundated updated the popular property taxes on owner-occupied housing tables by state and county for 2006. Here is a glimpse of the top 10 counties by two measures: (1) median real estate taxes paid (dollar value) and (2) median real estate taxes as a percentage of median home value. Once again, New Jersey and New York dominate the lists.
