Property taxes are rising: Here's who pays the most

In 2018, property taxes on the nation's 87 million U.S. single-family homes rose 4 percent to $293.4 billion, reaching an average of $3,498 per home, according to a new report from ATTOM Data Solutions, which runs a property database.

Property taxes have been a hot-button issue of late because of a $10,000 cap on deducting state and local taxes that was imposed as part of the Republican-led tax overhaul. Some homeowners in high-tax states have said the so-called SALT deduction cap means they owe the IRS this year, instead of getting refunds they received in previous years.

The SALT deduction cap "is putting this question back in people's minds," said Todd Teta, chief product officer at ATTOM. "Any state or local tax initiative has been heightened in people's minds over the last two years, given it was in the news."

There are indications property tax increases may be slowing in high-tax areas, Teta said. The difference between high-tax states and low-tax states has narrowed, resulting in a smaller gap between the states than in previous years, he added.

Coastal states with big metropolitan areas, such as New York and California, are among those with the highest property taxes, while Southern states had the lowest rates. The state with the lowest average property tax in 2018 was Alabama, at $788 per home.

U.S. states with the highest property taxes in 2018:

New Jersey: $8,780

Connecticut: $7,222

New York: $6,947

New Hampshire: $6,253

Massachusetts: $6,019

District of Columbia: $5,480

Rhode Island: $5,368

California: $5,354

Vermont: $5,331

Texas: $5,265

U.S. counties with the highest property taxes

Westchester, New York: $17,392

Rockland, New York: $12,925

Marin, California: $12,242

Bergen, New Jersey: $11,771

Nassau, New York: $11,708

Union, New Jersey: $11,075

Fairfield, Connecticut: $10,754

Morris, New Jersey: $10,507

There isn't much here that is overly expensive. Food, in general, is high and auto registration can be pretty steep. But there are no state income taxes, insurance is low, housing is not bad at all, gas if you're so inclined is average to slightly above. All in all expenses are very manageable.

They base auto registration on the original value of the vehicle and it takes about ten years of the car's life for it to get down to what we were used to in Illinois.

Next year we'll qualify for our state's version of a Homestead Act which should cut our tax about in half. YAY!

Do you have a sales tax? If so, do they tax everything like grocery store purchases, medical services and prescription drugs etc?

Yes, we have sales tax. 8.25% in Clark county. In the grocery store they tax some items like soap products, hardware, liquor, OTC drugs like aspirin, pet food, but not people food. No tax on any of those other items you mentioned.

My house insurance is about 3X my state and local property taxes, and that is for a modest Florida house. 

I am over 65 with a homestead exemption (school taxes not included) for the first $20,000 of value and draw a small disability so get a couple deductions, about 25% total, my annual is about $550 total on a single house in a city.
