I don't know if it would be that much more in the Syracuse area versus MN, but you have to count all of the costs when looking at different areas.

Where in Minneapolis are you coming from, btw?

It sounds like a similar community in our area would be Baldwinsville, Chittenango or maybe something like the Central Square area or Phoenix. Those areas have a wide range of prices and taxes would vary too. Here's an example of tax rates on average in Onondaga County for say a 200k home: Tax Rates (http://php.democratandchronicle.com/tax_rates/ - broken link)

You might have to search for yourself, but it gives a good indication of what the rates are.

upstate NY still takes the cake when it comes to property taxes as a % value of the property though.

Again, when you look at the overall picture, the major Upstate NY areas still are more affordable than many, if not most metro areas.

Even when looking at housing prices, those areas still come out more affordable including taxes.

I'm just going by the proximity of Chaska to Minneapolis and trying to figure out similar communities in terms of distance to Syracuse and that have a similar character.

You have to look at it on a city-to-city basis. Upstate NY, as part of New York state is home to some of the highest property, sales, and income taxes in the country. That takes a big bit out of your income at the end of the day.

Just run the comparison between Tampa and Syracuse. You may make $1 k less a year on average according to that calculator, but you end up with a much lower cost of living surprisingly, despite the fact that Tampa is a much bigger city than Syracuse. If you make $100 K in syracuse, you only need to make $83 K in Tampa to have a similar lifestyle.
