Here Are The States With The Highest Property Taxes

Tyler Durden, Zero Hedge

ATTOM Data Solutions has scoured county-level property tax records from across the country to figure out exactly who is getting punished the most on their real estate taxes.  To our complete 'shock', the resulting map looks eerily similar to the 2016 presidential electoral college map with the liberal bastions of the Northeast and Midwest suffering the highest property tax burdens.  Per RealtyTrac:

Average Annual Property Tax was $3,296, an Effective Tax Rate of 1.15 Percent; Highest Effective Tax Rates in New Jersey, Illinois, Texas, New Hampshire, Vermont; Owner-Occupied Properties Register Higher Effective Tax Rates Than Investment Properties

ATTOM Data Solutions, curator of the nation’s largest fused property database, today released a 2016 property tax analysis for more than 84 million U.S. single family homes, which shows that property taxes levied on single family homes in 2016 totaled $277.7 billion, an average of $3,296 per home and an effective tax rate of 1.15 percent.

The report analyzed property tax data collected from county tax assessor offices nationwide at the state, metro and county level along with estimated market values of single family homes calculated using an automated valuation model (AVM). The effective tax rate was the average annual property tax expressed as a percentage of the average estimated market value of homes in each geographic area.

The Reagan Tax Cuts Worked

Thanks to "bracket creep," the inflation of the 1970s pushed millions of taxpayers into higher tax brackets even though their inflation-adjusted incomes were not rising. To help offset this tax increase and also to improve incentives to work, save, and invest, President Reagan proposed sweeping tax rate reductions during the 1980s. What happened? Total tax revenues climbed by 99.4 percent during the 1980s, and the results are even more impressive when looking at what happened to personal income tax revenues. Once the economy received an unambiguous tax cut in January 1983, income tax revenues climbed dramatically, increasing by more than 54 percent by 1989 (28 percent after adjusting for inflation).
