I find these numbers not correct by the numbers on my houses in Washington state. If we go with market value of today. First... comps at this time. Market value $160,000 pay $2000 tax. Second market vaule $200,000 pay $3,800. Amazing how the true market bank lender value can drop and the taxes haven't - actually gone up. Combined in two years loss of value combined $280,000 tax drop + $500 in tax.

things that make you go hmmmm.

I am glad I don't own a home in New Jersey or New York. My county isn't on the list at all.

There are several pages to this list. At the bottom of the list, it has the rankings range with 100 on each page.

Also, my county was 66th, but the price of the homes offset the taxes, in a sense. The Syracuse metro is #1 out of the top 100 biggest metro in terms of having the lowest foreclosures.

I went all the way to number 788, and didn't see little ol' Mason County, Michigan.

My county is #4. I own a 1300 square foot home on a 60x100 lot and we pay around 9,000 a year.

Yeah, I couldn't find it either. I'm wondering if it is for counties in metro areas. Muskegon County is the closest county I saw to you and it was in the 200-300 range.

Ouch! WE own a 2200 square foot home on 1/2 an acre in town and taxes are $2300 a year. Which is high for this area because the town just built a new sewer system, a new school, and added onto or renovated 3 other school buildings. The average for the houses I know here are less than half of ours out of town.
