So, I am starting to look at purchasing a home in Houston and I was wondering how the overall TOTAL tax rates compare to other cities/states.

What are your rates in the following categories?

State Income Tax Rate (if applicable):

City Tax (if applicable):

Property Tax on home:

Sales Tax:

Other Tax:


Like I said, I haven't purchased a home yet but this is what I'm seeing for Houston, Texas.

State Income Tax Rate: No State Income Tax

City Tax (if applicable):
No City Tax

Property Tax on home:
I'm seeing around the 2.5% range in Houston and up to 3.6% in the surrounding suburbs

Sales Tax:
8.25%

Other Tax:
I believe there are additional hotel and car rental taxes

You also have to consider toll roads and other monthly/yearly fees, if any.

What are your figures for South Beach and DT Raleigh(Total tax rates) ?

I am trying to come up with a nation wide comparison of TOTAL taxes but yes tolls are also a consideration.
