Does anyone have an idea on which is higher? Does NY include your car on your property tax?

NY (specifically Westchester, since you asked aobut Westchester on another thread) is generally - but not always - higher.

I cannot speak for fairfield..but we have friends that pay 22-24k per year in taxes in westchester..NOT saying that everyone does..but it is HIGH..and NO that doesnt include car insurance or homeowners (unless you are escrowing it)....thats a whole other monster all together.

You mentioned indian/asian food. Decent restaurants are also farther up north..(putnam and dutchess).. in case that is your background...temples, restaurants..but taxes even a bit farther north is high...we are considered "lucky" if taxes are less than 12k per year (and that is 60-70 miles north of the city)---and YES..its a bedroom community as people commute down to bergen county/NYC on a daily basis, whether it be by car or the Metro north railroad.

Why move out...we have family in Dublin, ohio..and Its sooooo clean, nice and Everything is so commutable!!! Everything is NEW as well!

There is a car registration in NYS that is good for two years. There isn't a tag tax based on car value as in many states. NYS has toll roads and the gas tax is high. Basically, these are user based taxes. Instead of paying $1,000 a year for a car tag, you pay $20 - $40 and then pay as you go on the toll roads or pay the gas tax as you fill your car. If you drive a lot you are paying for your actual use, and if you don't drive much you are not subsidizing someone else.

I have a small 1700+ sq ft condo in CT (long story), and the property taxes (not including condo association fee, which is another 5K or so) are around $11K.
