Source: Tax Foundation, based on Census data.

Note: Some counties had margins of error over 20%, or were missing key data, in one or more ACS fields and were, therefore, excluded.

Tax Foundation Notes: The figures in this table are for property taxes paid by households on owner-occupied housing. As a result, they exclude property taxes paid by businesses, renters, and others. All data come from the 2005-2009 American Community Survey from the U.S. Census Bureau. This table includes all counties in the United States. Also included are some incorporated cities that belong to no county, most of which are in Virginia. “Median Property Taxes Paid on Homes” is the median real estate tax paid on owner-occupied housing units for that county. The home value statistic used is the median value of owner-occupied housing units for that county. The income statistic used is the median household income for those households that are owner-occupied housing units.
